The carillonneur's Website has pages, photos and videos about each of the carillons that he plays.  But the text appears as dark gray on gray on some Web browsers, and thus may be very difficult to read.

A Dutch article about the building has many photos of it, but the paragraph of text about the tower dates from 1965, and only mentions three swinging bells.

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