The table below is an index to the 3 African and Mideastern traditional carillons, in order by the pitch of the bourdon (heaviest bell of the main keyboard range). The key to the four column headings is at the end of the table, along with some other notes.
Location (City : Country) Note Chr Nr Transp
CAPE TOWN - WM : S AFRICA B Z 39 -1
JERUSALEM - YMCA : ISRAEL D# X 35 +3
ISMAILIYA : EGYPT - - 28 -
Key to column headings:
The table is sorted first on the pitch of the bass bell, then on the number of bells [in the principal range], then on the chromatics indicator, state/province, city and site code. The actual weight of the bass bell is not used.
The weight range indicators for each octave are only gross approximations, and should not be taken to represent any specific bell.
