…the historic Woodlawn Chapel in the City of Canandaigua … received the gift of a Verdin Carillon. A sophisticated digital recording technology, the carillon captures the sounds of cast bronze bells to create the Westminster chime and hour strike, sound of liturgical bells, seasonal music favorites and more to the tune of some 800 different selections — from Beethoven to Sondheim, taps to “Amazing Grace.”
‘It’s pretty remarkable,’ said Woodlawn Cemetery Superintendent Doug Stone. He and several members of the Canandaigua Cemetery Association Board of Trustees at the chapel last week marveled at what the electronic carillon can do.
Recently installed, the Verdin Adagio II given through an anonymous donation comes with a catalog of hundreds of songs — everything from Broadway hits to classical hymns, seasonal music, military marches and more that can fit any occasion or season. ”
