Church Bell Sounds Germany, City Church

read more · listen · download

Recording six minutes church bell sounds in a small city in Germany.

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 between 1320 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°)
Weight: 2618kg
Bell 2: Fallerin (d¹)
Weight: 1766kg
Bell 3: Stürmerin (e¹)

Bell 4: Achterin (g¹)
Weight: 817kg
Bell 5: Große Kindsglocke (a¹)
Weight: 420kg
Bell 6: Kleine Kindsglocke (c²)

For the recording I used the  Zoom H6 and recorded in high quality 96/24 WAV. You can find all the church bell recordings in my “Complete Library” inside the Germany category!

Hello. How are you making a FLAC file from your recordings? Are you using a Zoom H6 for your recorder?

Hi Michael! Thank you for asking! Yes I use the Zoom H6 and I always record the file in 96/24 WAVE! When I create a FLAC file I easy export this as FLAC in Audition. Is there anything I can do for you?
