The church page on the parish Website has a photo of the building, a photo and brief mention of the carillon bells (48 P&F, 1993) and a paragraph about the four swinging bells.

The carillonneur's Website has no information about the two carillons that he plays.

The Dutch Wikipedia article about the town mentions the carillon more accurately than the related article about the church does.  Both articles have photos of the building.

The Dutch Religious Wiki article about the building describes the four swinging bells (3 ancient) but does not mention the carillon.  There are many photos of the building.

The website of Friends of the Jacobskerk has no information about the bells.

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