With the addition of Schubert’s Ode to Joy and Beethoven’s Ave Maria Chimes, one will soon be able to listen to most all of the clocks chimes currently available. These two newest clocks chimes add to the historically more famous, or at least utilized, chimes, which are the Westminster Chimes, St Michaels Chimes and the Whittngton Chimes.
It is worth noting that almost all of the quartz clocks playing either of these chimes give the Customer an opportunity to have not only the more traditional Chimes noted above, BUT ALSO to listen to the Ave Maria and Ode to Joy Chines on each quarter of every hour vs. hour only, which is the way Grandfather Clocks play these two newly added chimes all the time (currently, at least). Take a look at several of the Howard Miller Grandfather Clocks to hear the different chimes.
Howard Miller Clocks and Ridgeway Clocks, in particular, offer many clocks with the Ave Maria Chimes (frequently in concert with the Westminster Chimes) and Ode to Joy Chimes. Look around, listen, and enjoy!
