NOTES:

  1. For an explanation of the instrument-type tag at the end of each site link line, see the Instrument Type Abbreviations.

  2. Cities which have (or had) a carillon or chime during a historical period when they were part of, or were occupied by, a different country may be cross-referenced by the name which they bore in the language of that country.  For the same reason, place names are sometimes given in alternate languages.  Such references enable the reader to connect historical references with present circumstances, and are not intended to make any political statement regarding past or present facts.

  3. If you do not find here a city (or instrument) which you think should be listed, then check the page of sites that are no more or the combined index to all sites for this region.
