Accoustics and tone

In the same way as if you lie in a bath and hum around a bit you can find
the resonant frequency of the bath tub, I suspect that some bell tower will
have a resonant frequency or several.

If the ring of bells matches those resonances then you should expect to hear
a resonant and amplified sound.

Any reason why not? Any probable examples?
