Taylor’s has a proud tradition of building carillons, and this continues. Our carillons grace cathedrals, town halls, universities and civic towers in the UK, the USA, South Africa, Holland, Canada and Australia, and we are looking forward to replacing our own Foundry four octave carillon as part of our buildings restoration project. We pride ourselves on always having cast our own bells, engineered our own transmissions and built our own claviers.
At present we are undertaking major carillon projects at Canberra and Bathurst in Australia, with the production of new claviers as a part of each project. Our wood shop craftsmen have recently completed the first of these claviers, and two more are in production at present. They are beautiful pieces of craftsmanship and we expect they will serve well for a century or more.
