Years ago, as a non-ringing organist at weddings, I would long for the ringers to stop making their noise, so that I could hear what I was doing. These days, more often a ringer than an organist at weddings, I tend to have the same thoughts about the organist. Especially in the case of a local tower (Grays, Essex) where the ringers cannot hear the bells at all until the organist stops playing!!

If you're all of those rolled into one, you need serious help!!!! I 
thought Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde were fictional characters!

Seriously though, some conservationists fully understand the concept of 
dynamic, living heritage, but they are few and far between!
