Palm Sunday was to be the first ringing of the new church bells at Notre Dame, and I awoke about 8 am to a magnificent new sound. I hurriedly dressed and went outside to try to capture the music, but the bells quit tolling for me, so to speak. I caught the tail end of a less magnificent ringing later in the morning, which I’ll post as a video below. I made several other tries to get the full effect, but always turned up a day late and a dollar short when I tried to record them. Guess I need to get the schedule. NPR did a story on the bells, a link to which appears below.
Also here’s a link to a Utube video from February playing the old bells.
