The carillon of St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Harlem

The Bells of St. Martin’s Fall Silent as Churches in Harlem Struggle.  (Theh New York Times, 9/30/2018)
The bells were last played in July, and then only briefly during an inspection by a carillon expert. The last time they were heard regularly was in 2013 because the carillon has been “deemed structurally unsound,” said Malcolm J. Merriweather, a member of the congregation. He is also a conductor and an assistant professor of music at Brooklyn College.
