bulb does it take? How much does it cost the Church?
How many can sit on it at a time? The answer too

copies the magnificent voices of genuine swinging
and ringing cast bronze bells. These voices consist
of many combination and weights of bell rings,
peals and tolls; collected and recorded over a
period of more than 70 years.
