Eight of our visitors (Jenny, Sue, Derek, Rob, Cecily, Alex, Tim, and Duncan) rang a peal of 5,024 changes of Spliced Surprise Major (see Campanophile). They began ringing at 10:09am and came back into rounds at 1:21pm.
- “Major” meaning eight moving bells
- “Spliced” meaning they rang segments of five different methods (Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Cambridge, Superlative, and Rutland), shifting from one to another when the conductor called for it.
The peal was commissioned in celebration of the wedding of James Thomas Langfitt and Veronica Nur Valdes, which took place on Friday, 11 January 2013.
Several of the Miami ringers listened from outside the tower.
