Peace Music for Carillon

Remembrance of the end of the Second World War &

The establishment of the United Nations Organisation


In 2020, the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War will be commemorated worldwide. In addition, the United Nations will celebrate its 75th anniversary on 24 October 2020. Both memorable events fit in with the objective of WMPC to promote world peace by means of carillon music. For that reason, WMPC presents a collection of carillon music, based on compositions and songs that celebrate the idea of peace or the remembrance of the fallen. The arrangements in this collection were written by carillonneurs who play a War Memorial or Peace Carillon on a regular basis.

These contributions form a varied collection that will be available both digitally and in paper format. We sincerely thank the participating carillonneurs for their contribution. We hope that the music in this collection will advance the ideal of peace in 2020 and for years to come.

You can find the music in the special booklet (pdf) and the 15 musical pieces below:
