Martin Cooke Posted May 12, 2013 Share Posted May 12, 2013 I'm sure that many of us cannot bear playing the organ against bells. When I play for a wedding (as a visiting organist) nobody can understand why I want to establish a working relationship with the ringers so that we both get to do our bit before the service. However, at the school where I'm involved, there is a single chapel bell which tolls for 5 minutes before each service. This is, of course, nothing like as intrusive (against the organ) as a peal, but in view of the fact that we might want to replace the bell, I wonder if anyone has any view at all as to what note it might sound so as to 'chime' most harmonically with pre-service music. Is that a completely ridiculous question?? I suppose I'm hoping someone will say that a D crops up in more organ music than an F sharp, or something! Any thoughts? Martin.
