Just listened to a little organ piece by Elgar called "Loughborough Memorial Chimes". Did a bit of reading around and it turns out it was written for the sexiest instrument ever invented, the carillon (although the uilleann pipes and the tambura might dispute that claim).

In fact it was written for the unveiling of the carillon in Loughborough. My reading around (OK, Wikipedia) tells me that the bells of the carillon were made by Taylor's of Loughborough, one of the most venerable bell foundries in the world, who are still going strong and have a museum attached. I might have to make a little trip to Loughborough one day to see both the museum and the carillon.

nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.
His only competition was with himself. — Françoise Gilot
