Bill H: > A very good example 
is Greenwich tenor (Mears 1825 with tuning) - hum 118 cents sharp, 
but very quiet, prime only 67 cents flat (not very much compared with 
some of the horrors of the 19th century) but quieter than the 
nominal. A very nice match with the true-harmonic bells in my view.

I have always thought that it was a real shame that the tenor was not recast
along with the rest of the bells in 1954. An inferior tenor can really let a
ring down, and here IMHO it does, especially as the front 9 are quite nice.
(NB the tenor was cast in 1824.)
