Mota tad-Dhul il-Purcissjoni tal-Jum il-Festa tal-Madonna tal-Grazzja - 2012 00:00 - 01:45:09 - 3 bells - 01:45:10 - 02:28:21 - PLENUM This peal started with - Sib2 - mib3 (re3) - re3 (mib3) - mi3 - lab3.
In this recording you shall hear bells sounding La bem3, Mi3, Mi bem3, Re3, and Si bem2.
The twin belfries of Zabbar contain 5 bells; three of which are cast by Maltese bellfounder Giuliano Cauchi and two cast by another local bellfounder under the name of Gioacchino Trigance. The former were cast in the late 19th Century while the latter come from the late 18th - early 19th Century.
The largest bell weighs almost 2.8 tons and is one of five bells sounding the same note and also cast by Cauchi. None of the bells is mechanically tuned from the inside and all bells are hung fixed to their headstocks and therefore ringing is achieved by manualy swinging the clapper to strike the soundbows of the bells.
