The only thing I find unusual is the sharp tenor (chime #16), which 
is almost useless from a chimer's viewpoint (especially without the 
semitone between #10/11). Chime #12 is the sharp fourth, and chime 
#9 is the flat seventh (musically speaking), both of which are quite 
standard in chimes.

Howard, can you supply the notes for chime #1-6? They aren't obvious 
(to me) from the weights, and there are a couple of possibilities.
