Clair de Lune Chime
This chime is tuned to the opening phrase of Clair de Lune, a distinctive melody made up of seven two-note chords. To replicate this, the chime was designed with two different sized clappers, so both the upper and lower tubes are struck at the same time. In this way, it plays double stops, or two notes at one time.
Clair de Lune translates to Light of the Moon or Moonlight and is the third movement of the Suite bergamasque, one of the most famous piano suites composed by Claude Debussy. First written around 1890, when Debussy was only 28, this melody was used for the Bellagio Fountain scene at the end of Oceans Eleven. A true original, there's no other windchime designed to play chords in this way.
Amazingly beautiful tone, I've loved them since the day I hung them over a year ago. Very disappointed in the construction, tacks keep coming out and chimes falling off. Most recently, as I was trying to put one of the fallen chimes back, 2 more fell off. I'd expect as much from a cheap set of chimes, these were not cheap by any means.

This is one of the the sweetest sounding chimes I have heard yet from Woodstock chimes. I purchased it in memory of my little 5 lb rat terrier dog who had passed about a month ago. She was so sweet and tiny. Someone had dumped her off on my rural gravel road during the 2007-2008 housing recession. The vet figured that she was about 4-5 years old at the time. She was my constant companion through many deaths in my family over time. We approximated that she was 17 years old at the time we had her put down. She became blind, deaf over the past 2 years but she still had the will to live and comfort our family. Finally on July 20, 2019 she awoke unable to stand on her two hind legs when I had to make the heartbreaking decision to have her put to sleep. Her many years of unending love, companionship and service had come to her earthly end I HAD to have a chime that fit her many years of devotion to our family. The Clair de Lune chime fit the bill to a T. I have many Woodstock chimes. This chime has the most wonderful sweet sound AND it plays often even when the wind is very light. The chime is well crafted and brings tears to my eyes when I hear it. I would recommend this chime to anyone who loses a loved one, whether man or beast. It would be a great chime for births, adoptions or any new addition to your family. I give it a solid 5 star for quality, uniqueness and sound. This chime, in my opinion, is one of the best chimes Woodstock has put out. It is a beautiful double decker chime and lovely to gaze upon. If you are looking for a fantastic chime...this is the one. I hope this helps you pick a chime you will be happy with for many years to come whether for yourself, a gift, an addition to your family or in memory of a loved one.
