    Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue on a bell carillon?

    Yep, you read that right - Has to be seen to be believed - actually quite sweetly interpreted - The Passacaglia:

    The Fugue:

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    You're right, Corno Dolce - I would have never believed if never seen. What a very talented Carillonneur this gentleman is ... and wonderful technique, too.

    Is there such a thing as a pedal carillon? Appeared that the lower notes (passacaglia theme) were being played that way as their respective levers were being activated without being played by the hands (fists).

    Awesome. I suppose he's playing something like this (you can see the pedals). Reminds me a lot of some old tracker organs I've seen

    Thanks, Argoth! Cool picture ... again, the thought of a pedal carrillon never crossed my mind until now. A whole other technique for sure.
