Bell-hopping Again

You may think that my interest in Chinese church bells is waning. If so, you are mistaken I'm heading out again this weekend with a friend to check out some church bells in the coastal city of Qingdao.  There are two old churches there, (1 Protestant and 1 Catholic) which have bells.

Here's what one local website has to say about the bells at the Protestant Church:

On every Sunday, the pious Christians gather in the church, with melodious bell and dainty chant, pray quietly and listen to priest's preaching. During Christmas holidays, even more bustling people full of jolliness come here.

Looking forward to hearing the melodious bell and dainty chants.

Are they old or newly cast?  That's what we hope to find out.
