The treble was tuned to +902 cents, resulting in it sounding 
very "bright", and accentuating the dull tone of the 5th and 4th. As 
these bells were being sent to Whitechapel for tuning, I thought it 
prudent to flatten the treble to +890. The new 3rd is the 
lightest "Simpson tuned" C above middle C (it is 1043.5 or C-5/100) 
that we have ever made.
