GeneralPhotosRingingScoutingUsenet

I am not currently ringing so this page isn't really being updated much. I've left it here in case anyone finds the compositions useful.

This page is in two parts. The top part consists of short touches that might be suitable for a practice night or Sunday service ringing. The bottom part is a list of quarter peals that I have composed + 3 peals of Plain Bob Major.


Short Touches

These are automatically generated and then screened for musical interest. I am in the process of rewriting the scripts so that the output is clearer.

For short touches of Grandsire and Stedman Triple look at the Triples page.


Quarter Peals

I have quarter peal compositions online for the following methods

I have proved them but mistakes can be made when transferring them online so you are advised to check them before ringing them. If you spot any mistakes then please let me know.
