Ringing For England (posted 15 April 2014)

< Older | Newer >

Ringing for England

Bell ringing is the epitome of Englishness, a unique musical genre which was described by Handel as the ‘Sound of England’. In 2010, ‘Ringing for England’ started a campaign to promote the commemoration of St. George, England’s Patron Saint, on April 23rd every year, by getting churches across England to ring their bells.
This year, on April 23rd, Chichester Cathedral will ring its eight bells in celebration starting at 6.20pm following Evensong, and will attempt a quarter peal of Grandsire Triples. This will be followed by a shortened session of the usual Wednesday night practice. The quarter peal, the basic celebratory length of ¾ hour of continuous ringing, together with the traditional method of Grandsire Triples, makes for a very appropriate way to ‘ring for England’ on St George’s Day.
