Noyes Memorial Carillon
The House of Hope was one of the first churches in North America to have a carillon when the bells were installed in the tower in 1923. House of Hope's carillon is a four-octave, fully chromatic instrument with 49 bells ranging in weight from 11 pounds to 5,280 pounds. It operates entirely by mechanical means; that is, each key is connected directly to a bell by means of wires and transmission bars, and the instrument is thereby under the player's complete expressive control.
