“the tune brings joy to my heart” where’s it coming from?

“Dear Popville:

In recent days, from my window in Park View I’ve heard church bells sounding the Westminster Quarters, the clock bells melody in E major typical to Episcopal and Anglican churches.

The sound comes from south of Park View, perhaps near Howard, Shaw, Ledroit, Bloomingdale, Eckington, or thereabouts.

Anyone know which church is playing this and whether it’s a new development? I can’t believe this has been going on every 15 minutes for long without me noticing it, because the tune brings joy to my heart — remembrances of the bells at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine during my childhood in uptown Manhattan.”
