On our second Sunday in England, we were just a block away from St. Martin in the Bull Ring, a church famous for being the first to have sixteen bells. They ring the bells for an hour or so before the service, so I had plenty of time to take photos while I listened.

The Bull Ring has been a market in Birmingham since the 12th century. In modern times, it’s a shopping center.

Here’s a taste of what I was hearing while I took these photos:
