The Bells of the National Cathedral

Listen to the sounds of the season in this holiday special

The Bells of the National Cathedral—Part I


The historic Washington National Cathedral sustained significant damage from an earthquake that struck the eastern seaboard on August 23, 2011. To celebrate the resilient spirit and hope of the holiday season, click on the radio player to hear an hour-long special featuring the beautiful bells of the cathedral's carillon.

Host Mike Cuthbert ascended the bell tower and sat in the "wheelhouse" with distinguished carillonneur Edward Nassor, who melodiously played the bells exclusively for Prime Time Radio. Mike and he also had a fascinating conversation about the history and workings of the bells.
