Having tried a number of call change sequences, you can move on to longer sequences which follow standard calling patterns. The whole band can learn the sequence, in a similar way to which the whole band must learn a method to ring it. Learn the pattern, not the calls. The aim is for calls to be made quickly (target – every handstroke) so that the sequence is completed in a reasonable period of time and making it easier for the conductor to remember the sequence.
Click on a sequence title to download a resource with each change and call written out and a more detailed account of the calling pattern.
The resource shows the pattern starting from rounds but you can try the same exercise starting from different musical rows e.g. Whittingtons or Tittums
These are the changes for the Devon competition peal, as specified by the Devon Association of Ringers.
Devon: Rise, "Sixty-on-Thirds" and Lower.
