    TheWestminster Quartersis the most common name for a melody used by a set ofclockbellsto chime on each quarter hour. The number of chime sets matches the number of quarter hours that have passed. It is also known as the Westminster Chimes, or theCambridge Chimesfrom its place of origin, thechurch of St Mary the Great, Cambridge.
     

    This chime is traditionally, though without substantiation, believed to be a set of variations on the four notes that make up the fifth and sixth measures of "I know that my Redeemer liveth" fromHandel'sMessiah.This is why the chime is also played by the bells of the so-called 'Red Tower' inHalle, the native town of Handel.
     
    It was written in 1793 for a new clock inSt Mary the Great, the University ChurchinCambridge. There is some doubt over exactly who composed it: Revd DrJoseph Jowett,Regius Professor of Civil Law, was given the job, but he was probably assisted by eitherDr John Randall(1715–99), who was theProfessor of Musicfrom 1755, or his brilliant undergraduate pupil,William Crotch(1775-1847).
     
    In the mid-19th century the chime was adopted by theclock towerat thePalace of Westminster(whereBig Benhangs), whence its fame spread. It is now possibly the most commonly used chime forstriking clocks.According to the church records ofTrinity Episcopal Church (Williamsport, Pennsylvania), this chime sequence was incorporated into a tower clock mechanism by theE. Howard & Co., Boston, MA. The clock and chime in Trinity's steeple base was dedicated in December 1875. It holds the distinction of being the first tower clock in the United States to sound the Cambridge Quarters.
