Well, when you've tranferred it, got a satisfactory answer/conclusion, would
someone please send it to me, I do not subscribe (or whatever it is) to
'ringing theory'.

Shouldn't we transfer this topic to the ringing theory list (of which 
I'm not a member!)?

We still haven't come up with a satisfactory answer to George's 
original question!


Good idea. I was told that minor was something to do with the musical
relationship between the treble and tenor of a ring of six. Certainly major
would then make sense, eing rung on a major scale of eight. Maybe all even
bell names are related to musical terms.
