Anything to stop the composer sulking. Compliments to Luke Camden on ringing almost the entire peal with a completely untucked rope. With best wishes to the trunk-bound real Michael Williams while his polyjuice-fuelled alter ego makes peal-ringing hay. And wishing the drummer who percussed so offensively loudly in the church throughout almost the whole peal a slow, lingering and painful termination to his miserable existence. After the peal the band enjoyed a few hours in the General Elliott, and err... Aye.
