Composing for the Australian Carillons

The carillon is the largest concert instrument in existence. The accepted international definition of the carillon is: A musical instrument which consists of at least 23 fixed carillon bells (almost two octaves) arranged in a chromatic series and played from a keyboard that permits control of expression through variation of touch.

The National Carillon in Canberra has 55 bells, and the War Memorial Carillon in Sydney has 54 bells.
