Be joyful

Regina Coeli

¶ During Eastertide, bells are rung morning, noon, and evening in honor of the resurrection and the following is said.

O Queen of heaven, be joyful, alleluia;
Because he whom so meetly thou barest, alleluia,
hath risen, as he promised, alleluia:
Pray for us to the Father, alleluia.

V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia;
R. For the Lord is risen indeed, alleluia.

Let us pray.
O God, who by the resurrection of thy Son Jesus Christ didst vouchsafe to give gladness unto the world: Grant, we beseech thee, that we, being holpen by the Virgin Mary, his Mother, may attain unto the joys of everlasting life; through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

"During Eastertide, bells are rung morning, noon, and evening"

But just HOW are the bells rung? I have yet to find an definitive answer. In 1742, Benedict XIV decreed that the Regina Coeli was to be prayed in the Easter season during the ringing of the Angelus bell. But I am aware of another pattern of ringing that is used amongst us. See, e.g., http://www.ecusa.anglican.org/19625_15190_ENG_HTM.htm

Can anyone point to an authoritative source?
