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.
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.
This was a bridal shower gift which was cancelled due to the virus situation. It will now be part of her wedding gift for August wedding!!! Still in the box!!! We have several of your chimes & LOVE them!!! Thanks for what you do!!!
I bought these as a gift to my Mom. She absolutely LOVES them. She lives on a 40 acre property and they can be heard from a great distance. Thank you for producing such great quality chimes.
Was given to a friend for house, as we had visited Westminster together! She liked them so much, she took to her office in University!
