Carillon Bells of Britain

England is world famous for its tower bell change ringing and handbell tune ringing traditions, but the art of carillon music properly belongs to the Low Countries. Britain only has a handfull of true carillons and this album features five of them plus some chimes from historic domestic clocks and the famous "Oranges & Lemons" from St. Clements in London. A wide spectrum of music is played from the carillons of Loughborough, Bournville, Aberdeen, Perth and Kilmarnock to demonstrate this fascinating but little heard tradition.
