Ding dong merrily on high – while down below….. it’s chilly!

Finally after weeks of waiting for a fine day and one when our university and church musician Ms. Wang is free…..  yesterday was THE day!

Actually it was overcast, cold and a bit drizzly, but the sounds of Christmas Carols got to ring out over the whole area as Ms. Wang sat at her keyboard recording the carols for the carillon of 18 Paccard bells up above.

The bells were installed in April 2011 and this is the first year we’ve got Christmas Carols to listen to.. YA!

It may be all computerized, but it still needs a real person to input the music…. and another real person to manage the electronics, which is where Yu-Lin came in ~ plus holding down the pages in the wind!


2 hours of recording later and now we can all listen to Christmas Carols ringing out over the campus and local area ~ Ding dong merrily on high!
