Hello everybody,

On FaceBook I have seen an invitation to write for the carillon of the Domtoren (church) in Utrecht.

I never came on the idea to write for this instrument until now. The problem is that I don't know how to compose for the carillon. I cannot find much information about the possibilities and limitations of the carillon, so I would really appreciate it if you could tell me more about it!

Thank you,

Hi Maarten, exciting project.

I think it's mandatory to know the range of the bells.

I found this information, perhaps you find it useful:
