Carillon: the Sacredness of Trees

14 November, 09:00 | Bodø Domkirke

The Sacredness of Trees by Ellen Lindquist, commissioned by Nordic Music Days. Performed by Vegar Sandholt.

The Bodø Cathedral carillon is a beautiful instrument, built in 2012 with 50 bells (a bit more than 4 octaves) which were cast at the Royal Eijsbouts factory in Asten, the Netherlands. Royal Eijsbouts is one of the oldest and most respected bell foundries in the world (the deepest bell at Notre-Dame in Paris was cast there). With this piece, the festivals get its very own tones that will get the city started every day during the festivals.
