In the old town of Biberach, Baden-Württemberg, Germany there is the “Simultankirche” St. Martin and Maria church. This church is by both the Protestant and Catholic community since 1548! Built between1320 and 1370 as a three-nave pillar basilica is the oldest and largest church in the city. A new architect continued the work around 1340 and added the mighty facade tower to the market square.
From the grand tower, you can listen to six bells that three were poured from a local foundry in 1584. The others were made in 1962, in 1663 and in 1624. It sounds festive, glorious and the sound character is quite pleasant in comparison to many other church bells in the same age.
If you curious, read below about each bell’s name and weight:
Bell 1: Elferin (h°)
Bell 2: Fallerin (d¹)
Bell 3: Stürmerin (e¹)
Bell 4: Achterin (g¹)
Bell 5: Große Kindsglocke (a¹)
Bell 6: Kleine Kindsglocke (c²)
