Ringing, 29 January 2022

There were four of us today; Andrew, Jane, Maggie, and Randy.

We started with a plain course of St. Clements College Bob with Andrew on the trebles, Maggie on 3/4, Jane on 5/6, and Randy on the tenors. We rang it (mostly) correctly on the first go, without breaking or needing to start over, and it felt good.

In order to ring a spliced method, we decided to ring a plain course of Little Bob, with Randy on the trebles, Andrew on 3/4. Jane on 5/6, and Maggie on the tenors. That went well, and so we moved to splicing Little Bob and Plain Bob, with Andrew calling the changes. He threw in a Bob so that the method was a bit longer. We rang this a few times, with different calls, and Andrew calling them all.

We finished with some touches of Bob Major (Jane calling). We started in the same positions as above, but after a few failed attempts we decided to rotate, so that Maggie was on the trebles, Randy on 3/4, Andrew on 5/6, and Jane on the tenors. This went well. Jane called something she says is a typical Service touch, lasting about 5 minutes and typically rung just before a church service as something musical that doesn’t sound repetitive.

All in all, a good day of ringing.
