i came upon this site which has a lot of links to
bell ringing . I recently got a record album of Cotswold bells.
This is a lsot art here in the states where most "bells" are
electronic or recorded, or have no more than four tones, I
think the common tune that clocks often chime is Westminister
or Westminster? I think we have discussed this before but cannot
find a thread dedicated to bells, ringing and changing. I see it
mentioned in other threads. Any new info or links to add? Laurel

Westminster chime is rung on the tower at wesminster beside the houses of parliment


The Westminster chime was originally the Cambridge chime, the chime at Great St
Mary's, Cambridge, where a new clock was installed in 1793. The Revd Dr Joseph
Jowett, a law professor, was asked to compose a chime but it is usually
supposed that the composition was by his pupil, William Crotch (1775-1847).
Crotch was a child prodigy and at the age of 11 was assistant organist at
King's College, Cambridge. The tune of the chime is said to be based on a
phrase from Handel's aria 'I know that my Redeemer Liveth'. In 1859 Lord
Grimthorpe chose Crotch's tune for the new clock and bells in the Palace of
Westminster. These words have also become attached to the chime:
