In the abortion thread (all of which I've just ploughed through after a couple of days away!), MouseThief asked what campanology is. Here's a link, chosen not because it's the best one (but it has links to more explanatory ones) but because it has a picture of my son (he's the one on the extreme right - just like his Dad **BG** - who looks like a convict). This is the first link I've ever tried. Click here.

Hey: 10 out of 10 for links, I think.

Actually, 1 out of 1, if this is your first.

Finally I looked it up in the dictionary. It's campanOlogy, not campanAlogy. And it is indeed bellringing, although the word "campanology" doesn't appear on the page you link to.

That makes me a campanologist. I got to ring "blagovest" and "trezvon" (Russian bellringing patterns) this Sunday. We have four smallish bells; each is rung with one hand. It's fun; you have to cross your hands over like a piano player. And they're at about face-level, so when you're done your ears ring like crazy.

I tried a stint at change ringing when I was in my teens living near Boston, Mass, USA. Got to ring the bells in Old North Church on the 18th of April in '75 (1975, that is!). I didn't have a head for keeping the changes in my brain, and then we moved to New Hampshire, far from a bell tower. Alas. But it was great fun while it lasted, and hearing the bells on BBC shows on our local PBS station is fun!

I heard a wonderful show on change ringing on Karl Haas's "Inside Music" (christmas eve, 1985, if I recall). It used to sound like noise to me; now that I know what's going on, it sounds wonderful.

mousethief,
the only person to spell 'campanalogy' this way was you in that thread.

I used to do that..... great fun, we would go to the pub a lot afterwards, and I could ring a 23cwt bell - that's 23 X 100lbs..... 23 hundredweight. My local tower had a ring of 10, although I've rung on a ring of 12 before, as well as an outdoor ring - bells suspended on an outdoor cage, erected in the grounds of Salisbury Cathedral, where real bells are impractical because their weight would topple the 404ft spire.

Mousethief,
you didn't say so explicitely, but to me it was the most probable interpretation of your words in both threads. But I see that a to me at the first glance less probable interpretation is possible. Sorry if I was wrong.

Wolfgang
