The Dutch Wikipedia article about the building has one photo of it, and mentions the installation of the carillon, with a date of 1979 rather than 1974.  The reason for the discrepancy is unknown at present.

The Dutch religious wiki page about the building has several photos of it, but does not mention these bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Petit & Fritsen bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
