That sounds like something I would have done back when I ran our church's sound boards for a while, if we'd had a steeple bell set.  :smitten:

(I got into a bit of trouble over using old Greek and Russian and Latin hymns, and some English ones, from movie soundtracks before the services. ;) In a Southern Baptist church. Remember Batman's theme music from the DC Animated Universe? -- actually a hymn! Though I can't make out if it's Russian or Greek.)

Head to one side, what's that noise upstairs?

My 7 year old daughter with sieve on her head stomping round the room singing the imperial march
