The CARILLON is a musical instrument of 23 or more bells that when sounded produce music.  Carillon bells are hung stationary with only the clapper moving against the lip of the bell.  It is manually played from a console with both fists and feet activating batons and pedals attached to the clappers through mechanical linkage.  There is no electronic assistance to ring the bells.  Remarkable variations in expression are possible and controlled entirely by the carillonneur.   The music can travel great distances in all directions, making it a community instrument for the public.

 

The largest bell of the Princeton carillon weighs 12,880 pounds. Dedicated in 1927 the Princeton carillon is memorialized to The Class of 1892.  The 67 bronze bells were cast in England, France and The Netherlands. 

 

The carillon is a program of University Chapel Music and made possible by an endowment established by the Class of 1892.
