New bells for Notre Dame

For generations, France’s best-known cathedral has been ringing in masses and holidays with what some people called the most discordant bells in Europe. On Palm Sunday, Notre Dame Cathedral replaced its bells and marked the 850th anniversary of the Paris landmark. Weighing in at 23 tons, the nine new bells hark back to Notre Dame’s original chimes, which were destroyed during the French Revolution. Only one of the original 10 bells has survived.
