> Look - this thing of Canterbury 9th is no business of anyone except 
the Cathedral, the Cathedral Company of Ringers and the bellfounders 
and has nothing to do with the very interesting topic of trebles on 
higher numbers - which has exercised ringers and founders alike since 
the 18th century (Christ Church, Bristol springs to mind).
> So far as Canterbury is concerned, all of us who had any 
involvement were delighted with the bells at the tryout, and I for 
one have had no reason to change my opinion. I shall be interested to 
hear how the bells seem to have responded heavier clappers - 
especially outside.

Thank you David, well said!
