*Links:

The Cathedral Website includes a photo of the building and its new tower (under Architecture).  But now that the tower is complete, there is no information about the carillon (not even on the Music page).

News articles about the carillon:


A dramatic large photo of the cathedral shows the steel frame of the new tower, backed by a modern high-rise building.
From a similar perspective, a page about the overshadowing skyscraper also shows the cathedral.
A city tour page with photo
Another tour page with photo before the recent tower construction began
Five more photos, all clickable for larger versions.
From Dallas Architecture: an interactive neighborhood map showing the building's relationship to other significant buildings, plus a photo (click to enlarge) with brief architectural description.

Websurfers take note: the name of the building is occasionally mis-spelled as "Guadelupe".

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Eijsbouts bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
