Keep calm and carillon

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’m so sick of seeing ‘Keep calm and carry on’ stuff, and all the unfunny variants of it (like ‘Keep Calm and Carry’ on an M & S bag, the latest atrocity), that I thought I’d add my own version, before the overworked marketing idea finally curls up and dies.  I love carillons, and one of my favourite pieces of music is the Carillon from Bizet’s l’Arlèsienne. So keep calm and carillon. There are plenty of carillon clips on youtube, including music of Lady Gaga and the Super Mario Bros theme, but here’s a sonatina by Flor Peeters played on the carillon at Iowa State University.
