To be proportional to the rest of the ring, I would assume. If Whitechapel
(or Taylor's) were casting a complete new ring in C# the tenor would either
be around the 30 cwt mark (Doncaster) or around 35 cwt (Canterbury,
Sheffield (Whitechapel), Evesham, Leighton Luzzard (Taylor)). 25 cwt would
either be D (e.g. Leicester Cathedral, Selby, etc) or Eb (Shoreditch)
