Change ringing is the art of ringing a set of tuned bells in a tightly controlled manner to produce precise variations in their successive striking sequences, known as "changes". This can be by method ringing in which the ringers commit to memory the rules for generating each change, or by call changes, where the ringers are instructed how to generate each change by instructions from a conductor. This creates a form of bell music which cannot be discerned as a conventional melody, but is a series of mathematical sequences.

  • Change ringing is the art of ringing a set of tuned bells in a tightly controlled manner to produce precise variations in their successive striking sequences, known as "changes". This can be by method ringing in which the ringers commit to memory the rules for generating each change, or by call changes, where the ringers are instructed how to generate each change by instructions from a conductor. This creates a form of bell music which cannot be discerned as a conventional melody, but is a series of mathematical sequences. Change ringing originated following the invention of English full-circle tower bell ringing in the early 17th century, when bell ringers found that swinging a bell through a much larger arc than that required for swing-chiming gave control over the time between successive strikes of the clapper. Ordinarily a bell will swing through a small arc only at a set speed governed by its size and shape in the nature of a simple pendulum, but by swinging through a larger arc approaching a full circle, control of the strike interval can be exercised by the ringer. This culminated in the technique of full circle ringing, which enabled ringers to independently change the speeds of their individual bells accurately to combine in ringing different mathematical permutations, known as "changes". Speed control of a tower bell is exerted by the ringer only when each bell is mouth upwards and moving slowly near the balance point; this constraint and the intricate rope manipulation involved normally requires that each bell has its own ringer. The considerable weights of full-circle tower bells also means they cannot be easily stopped or started and the practical change of interval between successive strikes is limited. This places limitations on the rules for generating easily-rung changes; each bell must strike once in each change, but its position of striking in successive changes can only change by one place. Change ringing is practised worldwide, but it is by far most common on church bells in English churches, where it first developed. Change ringing is also performed on handbells, where conventionally each ringer holds two bells, and chimed on carillons and chimes of bells; though these are more commonly used to play conventional melodies.

  • Wechselläuten (auch Variationsläuten, englisch change ringing) ist eine hauptsächlich im angelsächsischen Kulturraum verbreitete Kunstform des Glockenläutens. Drei bis zwölf, manchmal mehr, selten aber über sechzehn Glocken werden reihum geläutet, wobei bei jeder Wiederholung, jedem Wechsel, die Reihenfolge der Glocken so variiert wird, dass keine Reihe doppelt auftaucht – ausgenommen der letzte Wechsel, in dem die Glocken wie zu Beginn in absteigender Tonhöhe geläutet werden. Ursprünglich für Kirchenglocken entwickelt, wird das Wechselläuten heute auch mit Handglocken praktiziert. Eine gewisse Popularität erlangte diese Praxis in der Zeit des Zweiten Weltkriegs, als in England die Kirchenglocken nicht geläutet wurden und die Glöckner auf andere Trainingsmöglichkeiten ausweichen mussten.

  • Växelringning (engelska change ringing) är en engelsk klockringningstradition. Den går ut på att man ringer vissa eller alla av kyrkans klockor, beroende på hur lång serie man vill ha, i ett bestämt mönster, changes. Man ringer först upp klockan så att den stannar upp och ner med hjälp av en stopp-pinne. När man drar i repet kommer klockan att svänga 360 grader och stanna vid stopp-pinnen på andra sidan. En växling innebär att samtliga klockor rings exakt en gång. Ju fler klockor som finns i klocktornet, desto fler alternativa växlingar finns. Med tre klockor finns sex växlingar och om man, som brukligt är, inleder och avslutar med den växling där klockorna rings i tonhöjdsordning från den högsta till den lägsta, blir serien 123, 132, 312, 321, 231, 213, 123. Många kyrkor i England har 7 eller 9 klockor och en hel ringning skulle ta flera dagar. (sv)
