"Les Cloches" of Notre-Dame



En
Marie, Gabriel, Anne-Geneviève, Denis, Marcel, Étienne, Benoît-Joseph, Maurice and Jean-Marie are the names of the nine new bells of the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris. The bells were installed in their new home on the 28th of February of 2013, date already planned for this ceremony, following the 850th anniversary of Notre-Dame cathedral and that accidentally coincided with the day Pope Benedict XVI, leader of the Catholic Church, resigned. The bells were designed and conceived according to the original ones, following all traditional techniques to work the bronze and performed by the best artisans of today and were offered, each one, by different benefactors. The nine bells were exhibited in the nave of the cathedral during February, giving Notre-Dame a very uncommon but pretty cool look. The Travelling Dandy was there! 


Now, all the set of bells will be heard again in the streets of Paris, a symphony not heard since the days of the French Revolution in 1789, when the original bells were taken and melted. Quasimodo should be happy...

Marie, Gabriel, Anne-Geneviève, Denis, Marcel, Étienne, Benoît-Joseph, Maurice e Jean-Marie são os nomes dos nove novos sinos da catedral de Notre-Dame em Paris. Os sinos foram instalados no dia 28 de Fevereiro de 2013, data planeada para o evento de acordo com o programa de celebrações do 850º aniversário da catedral, dia que acabou por coincidir com o dia em que o Papa Bento XVI, líder da Igreja Católica, resignou. Os sinos foram desenhados e construidos a partir dos métodos tradicionais pelos melhores artesãos de bronze actuais e foram oferecidos, cada um deles, por diferentes benfeitores. Os nove sinos estiveram em exposição na nave central da catedral durante o mês de Fevereiro, dando a Notre-Dame uma imagem pouco usual mas muito cool. The Travelling Dandy esteve lá!



Agora, todo o jogo de sinos poderá ser ouvido novamente pelas ruas de Paris, uma sinfonia não ouvida desde os tempos da Revolução Francesa, em 1789, quando os sinos originais foram retirados e fundidos. O Quasimodo deve estar contente...
