Handbell roundup for November

Here is our (rather late) handbell roundup for November 2014......

Notable firsts:

Significant milestones

Other interesting performances

Featured performance

We liked the 7-spliced Surprise minor with a handful of firsts for Mike Wigney and Steve Mitchell - a great effort. 

Also, those clever Berkshire ringers have moved into 14-bell territory, with a first for nearly all the band.

With Noonan's and Wylde's Stedman Triples, that classy handbell band has now rung all the Landmark compositions silent and non-conducted.  A huge collective achievement, and a record that deserves to stand for a while.

However, for our featured performance this month, we have selected a peal of London Royal, a first for the Guildford Guild:

Guildford Diocesan Guild
