*Links:

The German Wikipedia article about the town has a brief description of the church, and a photo of it, but does not mention the bells.

The DGV page about this carillon has a photo of the south tower (with all bells visible in the south opening) but very few details.

The parish Website has a small photo of the church in all page headings.  There is a long Music page, but these bells are not mentioned anywhere.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Schilling bellfoundries, in this region and in the world.
