The Website of the carillonist (in Dutch) has photos, description and history.

The Website of the association that promotes both the organ and the carillon has more photos and two videos.

The Dutch Wikipedia article about the building has a photo of it, but does not mention the carillon--only an anonymous old bell in the roofridge spirelet.

The Dutch religious wiki page about the building has several photos that show the tower, but only mentions the same old bell.

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