is a musical instrument that is played by a performer striking a keyboard which causes clappers to strike bells. The bells
are the stars of the instrument: they are constructed in foundries, made of bronze, and tuned
by shaving the insides of the bells until a perfect harmonic sequence is attained. The largest bell, weighing in at over six and a half tons, is located at the Kirk-In-The-Hills
Presbyterian Church in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
Here are some samples of what one sounds
like. Music performed on the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Carillon
