What's wrong with installing variable sound control?   

By installing a variable system, you can have both loud ringing for 
special occasions and the sound much attenuated for others.   Far 
better to do this from the outset, then situations, such at the one 
which prevailed at Trinity, New York, until the sound control was 
fitted, will not arise.
