The Saint Alban’s Carillon, by Petit & Fritsen Bell foundry of Aarle-Rixtel in the Netherlands, was installed in 1953 after the completion of the bell tower. The keyboard and tower was prepared for 42 bells, however only 36 could be purchased with the money available from donors. The largest bell weighs several tons and is heard every Sunday morning preceding the Processional Hymn. The smallest bell is about 10 inches high and weighs only a few pounds. Each bell is inscribed with a quotation and a name given to it by its donor.
