Audio of Guildford Cathedral's bells tolling just before a carol service. I have EQ'd out frequencies below 200Hz. The recorder was approximately 40-50 meters from the bells.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

The sound was recorded using a "Zoom H1 recorder" on 13th December 2017.
