Woodstock Temple Bells® - Trio, Copper
Inspired by ancient Chinese bells, this trio of bells offers a restful tone.
Bells have been used throughout the ages to accompany dance, to provide comfort and to warn of possible danger. The Chinese were the first to control the pitch or note of a bell, making it possible for them to play tunes. Soon bells were being used to accompany worship. On New Year's Eve the bells in Buddhist temples are rung 108 times, once for each of the 108 worldly desires.
In the East bells have become very important and are often decorated with significant symbols. For centuries, tuned bells have been suspended in homes and temples to ward off evil and attract good luck and prosperity. Woodstock Temple Bells are inspired by these ancient bells and work in harmony with the wind to create gentle, soothing tones.
I received a set of chimes for Christmas last year that have lovely lower sounds. These temple bells are delicate sounding that complement the other set beautifully. I love them!
These bells have such a pretty sound. I have three sets of temple bells, two of which are in brass and one is the 5-bell model. The brass are my favorite for the sound, but the copper are also very pretty. I hang mine on slender tree branches so that even the gentlest of breezes will make them sing.
