Saint Patrick's Day Bells

Saturday, March 17, 2018

For the third consecutive year, traditional Irish tunes will be played on the historic tower bells of Montpelier's Trinity United Methodist Church on Saturday, March 17, at 11:58 a.m. Michael Loris will play the unrestored 1908 McShane chime of ten bells (the only completely original tower bell instrument in Vermont), and the matching 1872 bass bell (or bourdon), one of the largest bells in the Green Mountain State (2,552 lb.). The eleven bronze bells weigh more than five tons, and are played by hand. The diatonic chime is completely mechanical, and was designed for the keys of C major and F major: Bb BCDEFGA BCD
