Le Tour – the Variety of Bells

As the venues for the Grand Departs of the Tour de France change, so does the style of the bells.

Here’s a clip for a tower near to the start of each of the last two and next two Tours.

2013 Corsica, France

St Jean Baptiste Cathedral, Bastia

2014 Leeds, UK

Leeds Minster – nice mp3 clip of their bells (ok on computer may not appear on phone)

A carillon where one person can play dozens of bells from a keyboard a little like a church organ.

The bells of Mont St Michel.
