> Weren't these bells tuned by Taylor's when they rehung them in the

Some were tuned in the soundbow to line up the nominals a bit (none are 
now more than 10 or 15 cents from ET) but some of the bells - certainly 
the tenor, possibly the fifth, I didn't look in them all - are maiden.

It is an interesting speculation as to whether there is enough metal in 
the tenor to allow any tuning, given that it is so light for its note.
