Singapore

St Andrew's Cathedral

The Republic of Singapore

This cathedral houses a Taylor chime of eight (Tenor 28 cwts) cast at Loughborough in 1888. The bells will be removed during November 2018 and be shipped to Loughborough. The largest six bells will be retained and reused after cleaning and re-tuning as the tenors of a new ring of twelve bells with new bells being cast to match. The bells will be hung with all new ringing fittings in a new galvanised steel bell frame designed to accommodate 14 bells.  It is intended that light treble and flat 6th will be cast to provide a lighter octave and ring of ten bells. The flat 6th has now been ordered.

Update

  • The bells have been removed from the tower and 130 years after leaving, have now returned to the Foundry. Two of the bells have been cast. The design of the new bell frame has been completed. The remaining bells will be cast on 18th April & 2nd May 2019.
