In yesterday’s PASCHALCAzT 50, I used a bit of a recording of the huge “Bourdon” bell – named “Emmanuel” – of Notre-Dame in Paris. The sound is amazing. A “bourdon” is the bell with the lowest pitch in a carillon. It was not rung for a long time because of the force it put on the ancient tower. However, that tower was strengthened and the Bourdon rang out again. However, after the fire… not so much.
Now the mighty Emmanuel has rung again!
