Click on any underlined country name above to go directly to that section of this index, or to the {separate country or regional index page}.  Within a country, sites are listed alphabetically by city and site-name.

There is a regional locator map which shows all of the sites indexed below which are in countries that do not have their own single-country regional maps.  The single-country maps can be reached either from that regional map or from the links at the tops of the corresponding country sections of this index page (below). (The regional locator maps are separate from the site locator maps that can be found from the site data pages.)

If you are looking for a specific site by its institutional name (e.g., a church or school) or by the instrument's proper name, then use the "find in page" feature of your Web browser to locate a distinctive word (or partial word) in that name.

NOTES:

  1. Cities which have (or had) a carillon 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  Such references enable the reader to connect historical references with present circumstances, and are not intended to express any political opinion regarding past or present facts.

  2. 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 for this region. If it's not there, then please send a message to csz_stl@swbell.net telling everything you know about it.
