OpenThread: Ring Silver Bells

I met this man two years ago at the NYS Renaissance Festival in Tuxedo. He plays on a four ton Medieval Carillon. When he preforms the bells echo throughout the valley. Awesome.


  1. I was listening to “Soundcheck” yesterday and they gave credit for The Christmas Truce to the song “Silent Night”

    The Christmas truce was a series of widespread unofficial ceasefires that took place along the Western Front around Christmas of 1914, during the First World War. Through the week leading up to Christmas, parties of German and British soldiers began to exchange seasonal greetings and songs between their trenches; on occasion, the tension was reduced to the point that individuals would walk across to talk to their opposite numbers bearing gifts. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, many soldiers from both sides – as well as, to a lesser degree, from French units – independently ventured into no man’s land, where they mingled, exchanging food and souvenirs. As well as joint burial ceremonies, several meetings ended in carol-singing, or – famously – games of football.

    Now that is one great song but I have trouble narrowing it down to just one.
