You are here

The Bells of St. James

St. James, Upper Montclair
Martha Boughner & Nina Nicholson

St. James, Upper Montclair is closed, but their bells let the town know "We are still here for you."

After the noonday chime, Director of Music Sean Price plays hymns and secular songs.

This is not recorded - he is up in the bell tower, physically ringing the bells for about 10 minutes.

People walking by stop and listen, smiles on their faces. Drivers even pull over in their cars to listen.

(Time: 0:57.)
