Woodstock Chimes SFS Sign of Faith Chime, Stained Glass
Tuned to the last six notes of the beloved hymn Fairest Lord Jesus , also called Beautiful Savior . Tuned to the last six notes of the beloved hymn, Beautiful Savior , this wind chime is an inspiration to all who see and hear it. St Olaf College, Minnesota, whose school song is Beautiful Savior , commissioned dozens of Woodstock Chimes with this tuning to be installed in the large Memorial Chime Tower on campus. Early Christians used the symbol of a fish drawn with two intersecting arcs as a way to reveal themselves to one another. This sign of faith, beautifully featured in stained glass on the windchime's windcatcher, has endured for 2000 years and continues to be widely used today. In 1979, Grammy Award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane still develop the chimes today as part of their family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley. Woodstock Chimes - The World's Favorite Windchime.
