Bells and Man is the title of a book written by Percival Price who has been referred to as the founder of the carillon profession in North America. PERCIVAL PRICE, (1901-1985), the first professional carillonneur in North America, was the first North American to graduate from the Carillon School in Mechelen, Belgium. He was a charter member and founding member of The Guild of Carillonneurs in North America. Carillon positions included Metropolitan Church, Toronto; Park Avenue Baptist Church (now Riverside church), New York City; Dominion Carillonneur at Ottawa, Canada. From 1939 until his retirement in 1970, he was Carillonneur and Professor of Campanology at the University of Michigan. Many of today's carillonneurs trained there under him. In honor of his centenary next year, Beverly Buchanan and other former Price students are preparing an anthology of his music with a biographical introduction by his daughter Daphne Price McCree. Price's contributions to carillon music number close to 1,000 selections, mostly previously unpublished. He was equally comfortable composing and arranging for carillons of all sizes, from 2 octaves to four and a half octaves and larger.
