Lady GaGa on the Carillon

The University of Denver has a beautiful set of 65 carillon bells “cast by the Eijsbouts foundry from the Netherlands in 1998. The largest bell weighs 11,685 lb”.  The bells are in the tower over the Ritchie Center and ring for the time and when they are played throughout the day.  I like them a lot.

One of my friends posted a video on Facebook that is definitely worth playing.  The carillonneur at Iowa State University played Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” on their carillon.  It’s quite amazing!  I hope DU does the same.
