Student Carilloneurs To Play Today

_______________________________________ I

On the top floor of Burton Memorial Tower, there is little re-
semblance to the plain floors and ceilings and hard wood chairs
usually found in University classrooms.f
Here in the working quarters of Prof. Percival Price, University
Carillonneur, are three homelike, comfortable rooms. A soft green
carpet is on the floor. There are armchairs and a sofa.
IN DIRECT ANTITHESIS to these domestic surroundings is the
cloistered room directly above which houses the University's famed
Baird Carillon.
In a world by itself stands the instrument whose keyboard,
approximately four feet in length, is dwarfed by the immense
size of the larger bells.
The bells are arranged in an arch at whose base directly centered is
the actual carillon. Beginning with the large bells, completely sur-
rounding the small room housing the instrument, they diminish in
size to the smallest ones at the top.
INTO THIS ENVIRONMENT this summer have stepped four
graduate students in the School of Music to learn the techniques of
carillon under the tutelage of Prof. Price.
At noon today Lois Batchelor, Betsy Gidley, Richard Harper
and Fred Fahrner, will present their first recital on the instru-
ment. Works of Bach, Mozart, Couperin, Willem de Fesch and
Gow will be played. The world's premiere of Prof. Price's Rhap-
sody for Two Carillonneurs No. 4, will also be performed by Miss
Batchelor and Miss Gidley.
All four students are primarily organists, but are studying the
carillon because as Miss Gidley pointed out "there has been a revival
of carillon in this country. In some places organists are being asked
to double on the instrument."
* * * ~
ENTHUSIASTIC IN expressing their delight over the carillon, "its
an awful lot of fun to play," the four jokingly referred to themselves
as the "first carillon quartet."
M But when it comes to the business at hand, the carillon pre-
sents many problems. Miss Batchelor explained that "no two caril-
Ions are alike. Each piece has to be arranged for the instrument
on which it is to be played."
More important to the beginning student however is the great
amount of physical exertion needed to play the carillon. It takes a
good hard blow with the fist, to put into operation the heavier bells.
Consequently an hour is 'all the beginner can practice without
causing injury to the hands.
* * * *
PLAYERS WEAR "stalls," which are little felt rings with ad-
hesive tape around the middle. When placed on the little finger,
which is the first part of the.fist to reach the levers operating the
bells, they soften the blow for the hand.
Another problem particular to the carillon is the fact that it
operates on a delayed action principle. On the piano as soon as a
note is struck it sounds. On the carillon however, the increased mech-
anism causes a short moment's hesitation between the actual strik-
ing of the note and the sounding. The players have to take account
of this and strike the note a little before it is to sound.
