Quebec cathedral celebrates newly-tuned bells

By on July 3, 2007

A bell-ringing team from Quebec, the United States and the United Kingdom completed a full peal of the eight bells at Quebec City’s Holy Trinity Cathedral after they were retuned at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in England. The group rang the bells in complicated sequences, about 5,000 times in two hours, 42 minutes.

The diocese of Quebec’s cathedral has produced an updated history entitled The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity: A Living History, by Clive Meredith and Keith Boeckner. Proceeds from the sale of the book support The Cathedral Foundation, which produced it. It is available for $8 in the cathedral gift shop or $10 by mail from [email protected]. In addition, Holy Trinity’s eight bells were rehung in the spring after being retuned at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in England. After the Palm Sunday service, a bell-ringing team from Quebec, the United States and the United Kingdom successfully completed a full peal of the bells, ringing them in complicated sequences about 5,000 times in two hours and 42 minutes
