The home page of the cathedral Website has some partial photos of the building.  The Church History page does not mention these bells.

A choir Website offers a fine aerial view of the cathedral and its mis-matched towers, one dating from 1283 and the other from 1333 (if I'm reading the Danish correctly!).

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Sørensen bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
