Les Cloches de Notre-Dame de Paris

D'avant le période révolutionnaire, il ne subsiste qu'une seule cloche, le bourdon Emmanuel fondu en 1686 par Florentin Le Gay, toujours en dans la tour sud et que le public peut encore admirer.

Lors de la grande restauration de la cathédrale au milieu du XIXe siècle, quatre cloches nouvelles furent bénites en 1856: Angélique-Françoise, Antoinette-Charlotte, Hyacinthe-Jeanne et Denise-David. Elles furent réalisées par la fonderie Guillaume et Besson à Angers. Mais elles ne s'accordaient ne avec le bourdon Emmanuel, ni entre elles.

Il fut donc décidé pour marquer le 850e anniversaire de la cathédrale en 2013 l'élaboration d'une nouvelle sonnerie composée de neuf nouvelles cloches maintenant en place dans les tours nord et sud, en complément du bourdon Emmanuel. Elles portent les noms de Marie, deuxième bourdon dans la tour nord, et de Gabriel, Anne-Geneviève, Denis, Marcel, Étienne, Benoît-Joseph, Maurice et Jean-Marie dans la tour sud. Les quatre cloches de 1856, qui ont sonné toutes les grandes heures de la cathédrale et de l'histoire de France aux XIXe et XXe siècles, don't la libération de Paris en 1944, ont donc été déposées et sont présentées ici.

English translation:

The Bells of Paris' Notre Dame

At Notre-Dame de Paris, there remains only one bell dating from before the revolutionary period. That bell was cast in 1686 by Emmanuel Florentin Le Gay, and is still mounted in the south tower on public display.

In 1856, during the great restoration of the cathedral, four new bells were blessed: Angélique-Françoise, Antoinette-Charlotte, Hyacinthe-Jeanne and Denise-David. They were designed by Guillaume Besson and cast in Angers foundry. But their ringing contrasted against the Emmanuel bourdon.

It was decided to commemorate the 850th anniversary of the cathedral in 2013 with the introduction of nine new bells in the north and south towers, in addition to the Emmanuel bell. They bear the names of Mary, the second bourdon in the north tower, and Gabriel, Anne-Genevieve, Denis, Marcel, Etienne, Benedict Joseph, Maurice and Jean-Marie in the south tower. The four bells of 1856, whose sound was heard during the finest hours of the cathedral and the history of France in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including the liberation of Paris in 1944, have been preserved and displayed here.
