Because of the variability in range between different carillons, all entries in the music catalog are marked with range requirements, as described below.
Considerable effort has been expended to verify and provide complete and detailed information about the range requirements of each item. We cannot, however, guarantee 100% accuracy of this information. Ultimately, examining the music itself is the only way to be sure. If you find errors in this catalog, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help us improve this catalog.
Usually, a range of 4 (octaves) means a piece is playable on a 47-bell carillon (no low C# or Eb). When lower chromatics are essential, those are specified in uppercase. Occasionally, some pieces are written for a 3-octave carillon with 2 extra notes (going up to d). Those are specified in lowercase letters with a plus sign. Half-octave designations normally indicate that the range required extends up to a g (or down to G if that is indicated in uppercase). Note that many pieces written for G-compass carillons offer alternate notes for effective performance on 4-octave carillons. No attempt is made to list these; such pieces are listed as "4." Thus, what is listed is the "minimum range requirement" for a given listing.
