Wednesday graduation ringing

Wednesday started cool and grey but the sun burned off the haar and we had a great day of ringing. There were only five of us but we tried a 240 of Grandsire, and a touch of St Simon's. For the procession after each ceremony we have been ringing an interesting piece of early 17th century single changes, from Duckworth's Tinntinnalogia (1668) p.16. This composition seems to go well with the solemn but celebratory atmosphere as the University officers process along North Street and in through the archway under the tower, led by the mace-bearers carrying the University's 15th-century silver-gilt ceremonial maces.
