*Technical data:

   Traditional chime (chimestand) of  9 bells
   Pitch of heaviest bell is F  in the middle octave
   Transposition is unknown
   Keyboard range:     ----  /    ----  
   The arrangement of tones and semitones is unknown.
   The whole instrument was installed in 1905
     with bells made by Meneely/Troy
   Year of latest technical information source is 1993


The Cathedral Website formerly had a History page (under About Trinity), which included an early photo of the previous building, and ... from which one could deduce that the chime was acquired when the present building was constructed.  However, there was no photograph of the present building and no mention of the chime.  Now there is no photo of the building nor any history at all.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Meneely (Troy) bellfoundry.
