A Peal of Yorkshire

Yesterday we rang our peal of Yorkshire, in a rather echoey room in the buildings of St James' Leith. I called the Bernard Taylor composition, and it went smoothly, although at one point I did indeed become slightly confused about the positions of my bells vs. the positions of the tenors at a middle. The peal was somewhat slower than we usually ring, because of the difficult acoustics. However, we had a good standard of ringing and it was satisfying to be able to score a peal at the first attempt with a non-standard combination of people - it's four years since we rang a peal with that band.

The next SACR handbell peal will be the 100th. We have heard that a St Andrews band are going for a peal on Friday, which will be a first for Isabella Scott, so good luck to them.
