Bells Of Speyer Cathedral

Bells of Speyer Cathedral

 Bell sounds are most inspiring around the seasons of  Christmas and Easter as are the Bells of Speyer Cathedral where much of the Western world is celebrating these two sacred but joyous seasons. It is interesting to note that bells in the West can be traced back to the 6th century as they create sounds of jubilation as well as meditation and introspection. It is also interest that bells form a sort of anthesis of action and thought. In times of war bells were stolen and melted down to make cannons but in time of peace cannons are melted down to make bells. We now visit a little town on the Rhine across from Heidelberg called Speyer. The cathedral there in that Baroque city is over 1000 years old Listen to its sounds.
