May 28, 2007 | Other
A new tower and a set of 9 bells can play portuguese popular songs or others like Bach's tunes. The new tower and set of bells started to play on May 25th at Calheiros's Church in Ponte de Lima (Portugal).

Viana do Castelo's Bishop, D. José Augusto Pedreira was present at the inaugural concert of this set of bells. Besides gospel music, the bells played classical music followed by three portuguese popular tunes, two Christmas tunes and "Yellow Subbmarine" by The Beatles and "Love Me Tender" by Elvis Presley.

What a lovely thing to do! Church bells are lovely. Nice selections, too, except "Yellow Submarine"? What a hoot! I hope they program in "(Can't help) Falling In Love With You.
