This classic style chime is tuned to the bright and joyful tones from the famous finale of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.
Beethoven's last great work, his Symphony No. 9 in D minor, premiered in Vienna in 1824. Also known as the Ode to Joy Symphony, it was received with numerous standing ovations, with some members of the audience enthusiastically waving hats and handkerchiefs to show their appreciation for the composer who could no longer hear the applause. The words in the choral finale were taken from a poem by Friedrich Schiller, and the music from this movement has been adopted as the official European Anthem.
Be embraced, millions!
This kiss for the whole world!
Brothers, above the starry canopy
Must a loving Father dwell.
Do you bow down, millions?
Do you sense the Creator, world?
Seek Him beyond the starry canopy!
Beyond the stars must He dwell.

Maintenance: Every part of a Woodstock Chime is weather protected. Over time, however, those layers of protection can begin to wear. To enjoy your Woodstock Chimes for years to come, we suggest the following simple maintenance tips --
Periodically, apply a thin layer of Danish oil or lemon oil with a clean cloth to the hardwood parts. Regular oiling will help protect the wood and retard the natural aging process.
Woodstock Chimes rods are made of aluminum that will not rust when exposed to the elements. However, when hung outdoors, the aluminum may show wear as a result of environmental factors. Please note this will not affect the beautiful tones of your chimes. If necessary, use mild soap and water (or a foaming, non-abrasive cleanser) to clean the rods You can also use very fine #00 steel wool to polish and restore your aluminum rods.
