In this unedited clip, you can hear the bells of at least three churches ringing out across the city of Zürich, Switzerland. As the first bells (from St Peter’s Church) fade out, those of the more distant Fraumünster Church become clearer. Listen to the glorious play between the fading coda of St Peter’s and the sustained resonance of Fraumünster, reverberating through miles of quiet cobblestone alleys. St Peter’s returns briefly to chime the hour, during which time Fraumünster finally falls silent. As the last of St. Peter’s nine chimes fades away, you can just hear the last two nine o’clock chimes from a third, and quite distant, church.
