This is correct. There has not been an incumbent, (I cannot remember 
if there is an interregnum or he had been on extended study leave), 
and this has delayed the faculty application to have the tenor 
rehung. I don't remember them as being that horrible, though looking 
at my diary I noted them as being, "crap"! I have my own "code" 
which means that I put in a slightly better comment than I mean, just 
in case a local sees me writing up my grabs! They must be bad then!
