church bells

This is when you know you are having a slow day: I actually became interested in a HS/Yle story about rerecording of church bells. There is a radio ritual in Finland, started apparently in year 1944, to play the sound of Turku Lutheran Cathedral bells at 12 noon every day in main Radio 1 FM channel. There is something smoothing and relaxing in its slow, echoing sound. You can read a story of the bells and listen to the recordings in MP3 files from here (in Finnish only).
