In context, the new replacement bell is situated in the middle of the range of bells. As such, it is one of the most-played notes in the instrument. In the best academic tradition, its voice "informs" the rest of the Carillon, establishing its temperament and literally setting the tone and tenor of the whole.
Tennyson's entreaty from "In Memoriam":
Ring out the old, ring in the new
Ring out the false, ring in the true
is all the more pertinent as we race towards the New Millennium.
The order of universal harmony demands a new concord, of bells as of humankind.
