Many folks seem to prefer 3456s and 6543s in royal, and 2345s and
5432s in maximus, apparently based on the musical intervals involved.

Does anyone have any opinions, ideally founded on practical experience
of ringing things containing them, about little bell rollups in caters
and cinques, rung with a cover? Are particular choices of little bells
likely to be preferable? Are one of ascending or descending rollups
more ear pleasing?
