From Library Journal:

Williams (Music, University of Kansas, Lawrence) traces the origin of the use of bells to ceremonial trumpets and semantrons in the ancient world. Encyclopedic in detail, this account covers the history of bell construction and use of bells of all types, including carillons, and especially the unique grand Russian instruments. The story offers an unusually broad view of Russian history and the importance of bells in Russian culture. A clearly written, carefully detailed, beautifully illustrated, and fascinating study for the specialist and informed general reader. Timothy J. McGee, Faculty of Music, Univ. of Toronto
Copyright 1985 Reed Business Information, Inc.
