The Dutch religious wiki page about the church has some photos of the tower, and describes old church bells but not the carillon.

On the church Website, the Contact page has a photo of the tower.

The Website of the bellringers guild of Vianen (in Dutch) has a page about the tower as well as one about the three church bells and the carillon.  Since 1998, computer auto for quarter tunes; previously a drum.  Keyboard above the carillon bells, which are above the swinging bells.  A "Foto/Video" page includes a video of the carillon being played.

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