Day 3

Today we have for you the Fall 1968 issue of Overtones, which is dedicated to Christmas ringing ideas. You’ll find articles about the ongoing tradition of Christmas Ringing on Beacon Hill in Massachusetts, the home of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers (now Handbell Musicians of America) and more. You’ll see important historical names in handbells such as Margaret Shurcliff, Dick Litterst, James Salzwedel, Helen Flanagan, Bob Ivey, and Nancy Poore Tufts. There are also a couple of pieces of music for you to play. Please enjoy this historical piece of HMA and handbell ringing in America.
