Tuned to the opening notes of Take Me Out to the Ball Game.
Inspired by the Chicago Cubs' World Series win in 2016, this chime is tuned to the opening notes of Take Me Out to the Ball Game, a Tin Pan Alley song written in 1908 by Jack Norworth and put to music by Albert Von Tilzer. The song was first played at a Major League Baseball game during the 4th game of the 1934 World Series. Nowadays it's sung at baseball games in North America, always during the seventh-inning stretch, with the crowd enthusiastically singing along.

Tuned to the opening phrase of Debussy's Clair de Lune.
This chime is tuned to the opening phrase of Clair de Lune, a distinctive melody made up of seven two-note chords.
To replicate this, the chime was designed with two different sized clappers, so both the upper and lower tubes are struck at the same time. In this way, it plays double stops, or two notes at one time.
Clair de Lune translates to Light of the Moon or Moonlight and is the third movement of the Suite bergamasque, one of the most famous piano suites composed by Claude Debussy. First written around 1890, when Debussy was only 28, this melody was used for the Bellagio Fountain scene at the end of Oceans Eleven. A true original, there's no other windchime designed to play chords in this way.
Tuned to notes from the popular song.
This cheerful chime is tuned to the instantly recognizable notes from "Happy Birthday," the song most frequently sung in the English language. Written by sisters and elementary school educators Patty and Mildred Hill in 1893, the original words were "Good Morning to All." The tune was adapted to "Happy Birthday to You," and that is the version that is so popular today.
Makes a great gift for him or her, adults and children alike.
Here's the iconic Happy Birthday to You that is so popular today.
Calm and uplifting - Gregorian Chimes - Alto, Silver offers a peaceful respite from the hectic world.
Experience the inner quiet that comes from listening to the peaceful patterns of Gregorian chant. Tuned to a medieval scale, this wind chime echoes the vocal music that has been sung as a part of daily devotionals and meditation in the monasteries and churches of Western Europe for more than a thousand years.
Many believe this music to have remarkable healing powers. The sound is beautiful, relaxing and mysteriously compelling. Like the free-flowing monophonic lines of the chant, this windchime's resonant tones will surround the listener as the sounds linger in the breeze.
All of the Woodstock Gregorian Chimes - Baritone, Tenor, Alto, Soprano and the Little Gregorian - harmonize beautifully together.
Here the Gregorian Chant Deum verum, or The True God is played.
One of our most popular tunings, the medium size has a mid-range tone.
This chime is tuned to the inspiring tones heard in the opening measures of Amazing Grace, one of America's best loved and most widely known hymns. The lyrics were written by Englishman John Newton in the late 18th century. As a young man on board a merchant ship, Newton underwent a spiritual awakening while caught in a deadly storm at sea. This was the beginning of a journey that would lead the one-time slave trader to become a vocal abolitionist, and transform a man without conviction into one of unshakable faith. It has played an important role in drug and alcohol recovery, the Civil War, the Civil Rights Movement and 9/11. Newton's message of hope and redemption from over 200 years ago resonates with the same power today in our Amazing Grace Chime.
