The Sacring

This Sacring or Sanctus bell (also known by several other names) was made for me by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry. I tell the story of the day I collected this bell in a separate blog. This bell is quite magnificent and one of my special favourites. It is tuned in the chord of G and has 13 tiny clappers which produce an amazing tinkling harmonic sound which lingers as only bell metal can.
