Seminar: Ringing the changes
November 24, 2022 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM at Zoom
Speaker: Alison Macfarlane
Change ringing, the way bells are rung in Britain and Ireland has evolved since the sixteenth century in a distinctive way and the social context of ringing has changed over time. Ringing for church services, now seen as a characteristic sound of an English Sunday, was unusual before the last quarter of the nineteenth century. Alison has rung at St Stephen’s for many years and has a keen interest in the history of St Albans bells and their ringers.
