Re: Stedman Caters at Westminste Abbey anyone?

Not certain, but I think I remember that the half-muffled peal at Westminster for Diana's funeral was lost part way through.  They went very briefly to rounds then started something else without stopping.

You could check with Michael Uphill as he was in the band.

I looked on BellBoard, but couldn't find an entry for the funeral performance there (https://bb.ringingworld.co.uk/search.php?from=05%2F09%2F1997&to=07%2F09%2F1997). I suppose entries from that far back might not all be there? In any case, is this performance half-muffled? I've never heard that before and would like to confirm my suspicion.
Perhaps to make up for it, the wedding peal has at least two entries online (https://bb.ringingworld.co.uk/view.php?id=1152576 and https://bb.ringingworld.co.uk/view.php?id=1069780). We may recognize the composer.

More bell-focused
My favorite S caters there is this one

I am amused that when the ringer of the 4th rings too soon and clips the 3 (about three seconds in), he gets a quick look and remark from the ringer of the 3. Really, though, the reason this is one of my most-shared ringing videos is that they ring rounds for about a minute before beginng the method, to get the rhythm just right. I wish we would do that more often.

&gt; Do you think you our up and coming ringers would like hear some
&gt; spectaculat Stedman Caters at Westminster Abbey (10, tenor 30 cwt)?
&gt; The Stedman is heard as the coffin approaches the hearse. It’s at the end
&gt; of the funeral recessional as
&gt; Diana Princess of Wales (deceased Aug 31, 1997 ; funeral Sept 6, 1997 in
&gt; Westminster Abbey) is on her way to her home of rest in Althorpe,
