Chimes & knells

Because they where also part of the traditional “sound landscape”, musical signals giving rhythm in “work and the days”: the angelus and the hours, the festivals and mournings of our ancestors, sometimes pealing the alarm bell to alert them tragic events (fire, war...), guiding the travellers or moving away hail...

Means of communication, civil or religious, and musical instruments, the bell and the bumblebee installed in top of the tower of the church or the belfry, and the small bell of the modest vaults are also true work of art by their decorations in relief. It’s to note that where french langage speaks about carillon (chime) (from quadrillon, precisely indicating a whole of four bells), the nissart employs tirignoùn ou trignoùn (from “three”?, in conformity with the number of bells of our bell-towers in the hinterland).

In the County, no swinging peal of bells, even less revolving peal specific to the wall-bell towers of the Pyrenean South, but simple tinklings, often actuated by a rudimentary system: a simple small cord, attached on a side to the clapper of each bell, held in hand by the bell ringer on the other. Before mechanization and the electrification (joined to the regression of the religious practice) definitively replaces, in top of the bell towers, the art of our bell ringers, here some ringings, witnesses of the sound past of our ancestors and the inventiveness of the traditional chimers.
