There is a recording of the bells playing 'Oranges and Lemons' on the prese=
nt bells at the end of the CD 'Carillons of Britain' - it was not on the ol=
d LP. Interesting as you can hear why the flat 4th chiming bell was ad=
ded as it allows of the correct transposition and the chords in the last co=
uplet. The old bells didn't have this feature.
Is there a booklet on the bells currently available ?
Stephen and Bill made some interesting comments on Jewry and Bow For myse=
lf, The Strand, along with Vedast and even Holborn are in a similar (if lig=
hter) league of excellence. Perhaps because of the towers - bells all down=
lower a bit, and the mix of London stock brick and large surfaces of Portl=
and Stone ? Compare with fine contemporary Mears rings at Cripplegate and =
Hart Street, where the sound quality is altogether different ( ragstone tow=
ers with 17th-c brick top stages).
It will be interesting to see what the St Dunstan-in-the-East Taylor 8 with=
the replacement 1, 5 and 8 sound like in their proposed new surroundings a=
s compared with what they were like in the City tower.
