Central Council Methods Library

The Central Council’s Methods library is now maintained using the Composition Library website. If you wish to find a method by name, you can use Composition Library’s quick search to find it, display its blue line, and explore its properties. It is free to register with Composition Library, and doing so provides many additional features, such as the ability to search using method properties, control how the blue line is displayed or printed, add new methods for private use (with automatic classification and checking for name or place notation conflicts with existing methods) and privately share a link to them with your band.

If you wish to download lists of methods and their place notations for use with spreadsheets or computer programs, first select the required download format below then click on the stage against the desired method class. Note that these formats are different from those provided before May 2018 and are explained in more detail in the Notes on Method Collections. Please direct any comments or issues arising to methods@cccbr.org.uk

Since the implementation of the Framework for Method Ringing on 1st June, the CCCBR Technical & Taxonomy Workgroup has started retroactively adding methods to the CCCBR Methods Library that were rung and named in past performances that did not qualify for inclusion at the time of ringing, but would do if rung today. Most, but not all, of these methods are already recorded in Composition Library as Provisional. As there were over 600 provisional methods, they are being added over a number of weeks following checks and referencing of their first performances. The third tranche has been added to the downloadable lists above. In addition, a cumulative report of methods added through retroactive recognition is available as Composition Library Report here provided that you are logged in.

314 new methods have been added to the CCCBR library:
