The carillon of San Feliu in Girona

By Tess Knighton

Carillon

The Romanesque church of San Feliu in Gerona boasts a number of curious and features. Together with the early Christian sarcophagi (fourth century) built into the exterior and interior walls, and the stunning carved alabaster tomb of San Narcís, a splendid carillon is found high on the left-hand wall of the presbytery. The carillon is quite often mentioned in ceremonials and consuetas of Spanish cathedrals as sounding at certain key and clearly specified moments of the liturgy. I would be interested to hear of other surviving examples and would welcome any information on the dating of the example in San Feliu.
