I know, dumb question. But my trusty old Prentice Hall Handbook for Writers isn't making itself clear to me at the moment.

Far away, the clock in the tower above city hall played Westminster chimes, and then it struck three.

Should "chimes" be capitalized?

Yes. It's the name of a piece of music. (short, admittedly, but music nonetheless)

I suspected as much. Thank you.
