Edgar W. and Margaret MacDonald Stanton Memorial Carillon



Luc Rombouts is city carillonneur of Tienen and university carilllonneur of Leuven (Belgium). He has given recitals in Europe and in the USA and has performed during festivals and congresses. Together with his colleague Twan Bearda he forms the carillon duet The Bells' Angels. His research on historical aspects of carillon culture resulted in facsimile editions of two collections of 18th century carillon music and in the award-winning carillon history book Zingend Brons. This book was published in an English edition under the title Singing Bronze. In 2016, Luc obtained a Ph.D. degree cum laude at Utrecht University on a study about the origin of the carillon.
