Chimes of Westminster®
This wind chime plays the famous tones of London's Big Ben, pealing out glorious sounds of celebration and spiritual richness.
The unique sound of these long tubes is the result of a phenomenon called the missing fundamental, a special way our brain perceives the vibrations from our ear. This occurs when a sound's overtones suggest a frequency to our ear that the sound itself lacks. Our Chimes of Westminster play the same traditional and joyous melody as the Westminster Quarters heard in the streets of central London for over 150 years.
Pause a brief while with me, to hear
The chimes which are floating sweet and clear,
Above the city's rush and roar,
As a wild bird's song by a lakelet's shore...
From Westminster Chimes by Maxwell Gray.
These chimes were a gift to a friend who was in the UK several years ago and said
the chimes brought her back to hearing them in London. All of the woodstock Chimes are wonderful. My set brings peace to our back yard.
Put them up for King Charles coronation. My second set. Love the majestic sound
I have several of your chimes but the sound of these is amazing. I hung them under the eave to protect from the winter elements. I did order the Wood Butter as you recommended and will use it as soon as it arrives. These are really large which makes them stand out among the rest. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
So beautiful looking. The sounds it makes isn't overwhelming. It is very soothing.
