Presentation delivered by David Hull on Wednesday 14 April 2021.

David explores the links between change-ringing and music, focusing on how the unique music created by change-ringing relates to more common forms of music, and the elements of ringing that are part of a successful musical performance. He also looks at some facets of methods and compositions that are used by ringers as measures of musicality.
