The Westminster Quarters is the most common name for a clock chime melody used by a set of four bells to 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, from its use at the Palace of Westminster, or the Cambridge Quarters from its place of origin, the church of St Mary the Great, Cambridge. Louis Vierne's organ piece Carillon de Westminster is a set of variations on one of the five chimes. Cyrillus Kreek's Requiem (1927) uses the chimes in the Introitus. The rock band U2 incorporated the Third Quarter chime as a guitar harmonic in the song "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" in 1980.

Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor died at the Royal Preston Hospital in Lancashire on Tuesday after suddenly becoming ill on his Abbeystead Estate. A friend of the Royal Family, he became the sixth Duke of Westminster in 1979. A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said: "I can confirm that Her Majesty the Queen is aware of the news about the Duke of Westminster. A private message of condolence is being sent by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were "deeply shocked and greatly saddened" by the sudden death of their friend the Duke of Westminster, a Clarence House spokeswoman said.
The Grand Organ of Westminster Cathedral is considered by many to be the greatest achievement and crowning glory of Henry Willis III, one of England’s finest organ builders. The earliest scheme for a new organ was proposed by T C Lewis in 1910 to a specification drawn up by Richard Runciman Terry, the first Master of Music. This proposal was for a large organ in several parts divided between the Apse and Tribunes. Largely for financial reasons, only the Choir Organ in the Apse was ever built. Willis was rather taken aback to discover that Vierne was practically blind, and his nervousness as he hummed what he had written - the chimes of the clock at the Houses of Parliament - caused him to put the tune the wrong way round! Vierne used this improvisation as the basis for his famous Carillon de Westminster, dedicating it ‘à mon ami Henri Willis, facteur d’orgues à Londres’.
