Styles of ringing[ edit ] Play media Static bells struck by solenoid -operated hammers in a bell-gable. Mechanism of a bell hung for English full-circle ringing. The bell can swing through a full circle in alternate directions.

English full-circle bells shown in the "down" position, in which English bell media are normally left between ringing sessions. English full-circle bells shown in the "up" position. In the western world English bell media, the common form of bell is a church bell or town bell, which is hung within a tower or bell cote.

Such bells are either fixed in a static position "hung dead" or mounted on a beam the "headstock" so they can swing to and fro. Bells that are hung dead are normally sounded by hitting the sound bow with a hammer or occasionally by pulling an internal clapper against the bell.

Where a bell is swung it can either be swung over a small arc by a rope and lever or by using a rope on a wheel to swing the bell higher.

As the bell swings higher the sound is projected outwards rather than downwards. Larger bells may be swung using electric motors.

In some places, such as Salzburg Cathedral the clappers are held against the sound bow whilst the bells are raised, then released sequentially to give a clean start to the ringing. At the end they are successively caught again by the mechanism to silence the bells.

A stay the wooden pole seen sticking up when the bells are down engages a mechanism to allow the bell to rest just past its balance point. The rope is attached to one side of a wheel so that a different amount of rope is wound on and off as it swings to and fro.

The bells are controlled by ringers one to a bell in a chamber below, who rotate the bell to through a full circle and back, and control the speed of oscillation when the bell is mouth upwards at the balance-point, when little effort is required. Swinging bells are sounded by an internal clapper.

The clapper may have a longer period of swing than the bell. In this case the bell will catch up with the clapper and if rung to or near full circle will carry the clapper up on the bell's trailing side.

Alternatively, the clapper may have a shorter period and catch up with the bell's leading side, travel up with the bell coming to rest on the downhill side. This latter method is used in English style full circle ringing. Occasionally the clappers have leather pads called muffles strapped around them to quieten the bells when practice ringing to avoid annoying the neighbourhood.

Also at funerals, half-muffles are often used to give a full open sound on one round, and a muffled sound on the alternate round — a distinctive, mournful effect.

This was done at the Funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales in A carillonwhich is a musical instrument consisting of at least 23 cast bronze cup-shaped bells, is tuned so that the bells can be played serially to produce a melody, or sounded together to play a chord.

A traditional carillon is played by striking a baton keyboard with the fists, and by pressing the keys of a pedal keyboard with the feet.

Church and temple bells[ edit ] Main article: Church bell In the Eastern worldthe traditional forms of bells are temple and palace bells, small ones being rung by a sharp rap with a stick, and very large ones rung by a blow from the outside by a large swinging beam.

See images of the great bell of Mii-dera below. The striking technique is employed worldwide for some of the largest tower-borne bells, because swinging the bells themselves could damage their towers.

In the Roman Catholic Church and among some High Lutherans and Anglicanssmall hand-held bells, called Sanctus or sacring bells[10] are often rung by a server at Mass when the priest holds high up first the host and then the chalice immediately after he has said the words of consecration over them the moment known as the Elevation.
