David Crawley wrote:It's only one step away from the old Bullring 
bells to St
Martin-in-the-Fields. Disposed of as beyond tuning and replaced by a 
ordinary ring (who would believe that the grand neighbouring rings at 
Abbey and St Clement Danes are from the same pot?). And like the old
Bullring bells they were most successfully tuned and have gone to a 
where they are appreciated - and again with a different acoustic!

I do not agree:my impression of Westminster abbey bells is that they 
are sweet, but bland. Trafalgar Square have a lot more "bass".
On another subject, I like the picture of the Rev. David, taken at the 
try out at St. Dunstan-in-the-east in 1953.
