carillon (noun) a set of bells in a tower, on which tunes can be played; a tune played by the carillon.
A carillon is a system of bells in a tower, on which music can be played. In some cases the system of bells is controlled from a piano keyboard. The bells make rising and falling musical sounds when played. The carillon provides pleasing music and is heard over a large area. The tune that is played by the bells of the carillon is also called carillon.
- A carillon was set up in the tower of the local church on the New Year's Eve, to extend a musical welcome to the New Year.
- As the system of bells producing music in the carillon is sometimes controlled from a piano keyboard, if the pianist is good at music, the carillon's music is bound to be sweet.
