New Year's bell, bid farewell to the old and welcome the new. Listen to the isolated version of the Ming "Yongle Great Bell" recording, the bell music of the Great Bell Temple in Beijing. It is very auspicious and festive, very meaningful!

Have you ever heard the ethereal and wonderful "The Bell Chime Music of the Great Bell Temple"?

The only recorded version of the first bell in the world, "Yongle Great Bell", reproduces the original charm of 2000.

Beijing Dazhong Temple, formerly known as Juesheng Temple, was built in the 11th year of Emperor Yongzheng's reign (1733), covering an area of more than 30,000 square meters. The Great Bell Temple houses the Yongle Great Bell cast by Zhu Di, the ancestor of Ming Chengzu. The bell is 6.75 meters high, 3.3 meters in diameter, and weighs about 46.5 tons. There are more than 100 kinds of Buddhist scriptures and mantras on the inner wall of the bell, with a total of more than 230,000 characters. The casting process of the bell body is exquisite, and the sound of the bell is simple and pure, loud and deep, and can be passed on for hundreds of miles. With a history of more than 600 years, it is the largest clock in the world. Has five qualities:

One must: the longest casting age;

Two musts: the most types of scriptures are cast;

Three musts: the bell spreads the farthest;

Four must: the best mechanical structure;

Five musts: the highest casting technology.

Folk music master Peng Xiuwen and other famous composers, conductors and performers used the "Yongle Great Bell" and Zeng Houyi's chimes and chimes for the first time to record court music, Buddhist music, traditional famous songs, etc. I hope that the audience and friends can listen to the bright and bold, solemn, elegant and delicate rhythm of the ancient bell.

Involving musical instruments

The chime (pinyin: Zhōng) is a traditional Chinese percussion instrument that began in the Bronze Age. The bells are cast in bronze, and different bells are arranged according to size and hang on a huge bell stand. Chimes are often used in combination with chimes; the "gold" in "Sound of Gold and Stone" refers to chimes, and "stone" refers to chimes.
Bianqing (pinyin: biān qìng) is one of the ancient percussion instruments of the Han nationality, mostly used in court music or grand ceremonies. A set of stone or jade chimes with different pitches are hung on the wooden frame, and the music is played with a small mallet.
