David was involved in writing the report on the bells of St Luke's Chelsea.
This said in essence, that the bells shouldn't be recast as they were a
complete Mears 10. But, as the two trebles were so dreadful, two new trebles
could be cast to replace them. The two old bells would have to be hung dead.


The writers of the report didn't seem to notice that to follow their advice
the bells would no longer be a Mears 10.

I knew David as a (rather dull) musicologist, with interests in organs
in particular.  He has been working for one of the conservation
bodies, but so far as I know has no formal trained knowledge of bells
or bellringing.

speaks on these matters?
