After Quasimodo's death, the bishop of the Cathedral of Notre Dame sent word
through the streets of Paris that a new bell ringer was needed.

The bishop decided that he would conduct the interviews personally and went

>
> After observing several applicants demonstrate their skills, he had decided
> to call it a day.
>
> Just then, an armless man approached him and announced that he was there to
> apply for the bell ringer's job. The bishop was incredulous.
>
> 'You have no arms !'
>
> 'No matter,' said the man. 'Observe !'
>
> And he began striking the bells with his face, producing a beautiful melody
> on the carillon.
>
> The bishop listened in astonishment; convinced he had finally found a
> replacement for Quasimodo.
>
> But suddenly, as he rushed forward to strike the bell, the armless man
> tripped and plunged headlong out of the belfry window to his death in the
> street below.
>
> The stunned bishop rushed down two hundred and ninety five church steps,
> when he reached the street, a crowd had gathered around the fallen figure,
> drawn by the beautiful music they had heard only moment before.
>
> As they silently parted to let the bishop through, one of them asked,

> 'Bishop, who was this man ?'.
