I appear to be in the minority in this belief, or at least out of
sync with those that make the "rules," but:

I would allow a band to ring anything they please.

And in describing it, I would, I think, usually give preference to
however they thought about it while ringing it.

last part, pointed to a low C-flat in the violas. I asked him what
had happened at rehearsals; he said, 'Nobody seemed to notice.'"
