A classic of the Aldeias Sonoras project is always the recording of the church bells of the villages we passed. Let us say that some churches and bell tones are more impressive than others. In the case of Fráguas, the ancestral and granitic beauty of the local church does not deserve the ordinary tone of its bell, a recording of poor quality, which makes us think that on these churches with no mechanical bells, an interesting sound ecologic measure would be to promote the overwriting of the bell tone recordings by others of better quality.
Recorded by Mariana Sousa on May 20th, 2010 at 2.59 p.m. with a Edirol R-44 recorder and a Tellinga PRO 7 parabolic microphone.
