  Carillon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A carillon is a musical instrument composed of at least 23 cup-shaped bells played from a baton keyboard using fists and feet (such an instrument with fewer than this number of bells is known as a chime).
Carillon bells are made of bell bronze, approximately 78% copper and 22% tin.
Carillons originated in the 15th century in the Low Countries of Europe: Belgium, the Netherlands and Northern France, when bell-makers perfected their art by tuning bells at several points so that they could be sounded together to produce concordant harmonies.

The carillon is played from a keyboard of large round wooden keys and short pedals which are connected to the bell clappers by simple tracker action.
The carillon's rarity may be attributed to the difficulty in tuning the partial tones in the bells so that chords and complex passages may be sounded accurately.
