* From my collection with more than 800 versions of “La Golondrina” , instrumentals and songs, world-wide, I am posting here one interesting and rare version with Old Mission Bells – San Juan Capistrano. *
-A 25 Note Maas-Rowe Vibrachime and Old Mission Bell”

Nestled in the hills of Southern California is the beautiful Mission San Juan Capistrano called “The Jewel of the Missions”. Here on November 1, 1776 Fra Junipero Serra first celebrated Mass on a hastily constructed altar, believed to have been in the same spot where the present Mission Church now stands.

A great stone Church which was considered the finest of all California Mission structures was started in February of 1796 and completed nine years later. Four bells which hung in the tower of this Church now hang in the “Campanario” or bell wall at the Mission.

The bells crashed to the ground when the great stone Church was destroyed by the earthquake of 1812. All the bells except one are cracked to-day, either from the fall or from years of use. The only bell which is not cracked is the bell named “San Antonio”, the second smallest of the group. This is the bell used for weddings in the Mission Church, and its tones are well-known to the villagers of San Juan Capistrano; as couples in ever increasing numbers come from near and far to be married in this most romantic spot in California. San Antonio, the happiness bell, cast in 1804, is heard at the end of this record. The other three bells, though cracked are still used to-day. The two largest bells are used to ring the Angelus and for Mass calls. The largest bell, named St. Vincente, was cast in 1776, and is estimated to weigh about 800 pounds. This bell is known as the memorial bell of the Mission since it has an inscription on it commemorating two resident priests of the Mission, Father F. Fuster and Father San Juan Santiago.

The second largest bell was cast in 1796, and is the only bell in the group to carry the name of the bell founder, Ruelas. The workmanship and lettering on the bells indicate that all four of them were cast in the same foundry.

In 1952 a modern 25-bell Vibrachime electronic carillon was installed in the mission. The Vibrachime carillon is equipped with an automatic player which plays both hymns and secular melodies that have long been favorites at the Mission. Eleven of these selections have been recorded here.

The Mass-Rowe Vibramachine uses accurately tuned metal rods to generate the bell tones. These rods are struck by small electrically actuated clappers, their tones are amplified and sound through special sound projectors concealed near the old bell wall. The effect is so realistic few visitors realize the beautiful carillon music does not originate from the old Mission bells until it becomes apparent that the four bells in the Campanario could not possibly cover the range of the music being played on the 25-bell electronic carillon.

The hymns and melodies were arranged for carillon by Paul D. Peery and Del Roper, staff carillonneurs of Maas-Rowe Carillons.

Since this record will find use on automatic tower music systems, which in many churches serve as a substitute for a carillon, tone quality and reliability of operation were given primary consideration in the cutting of the record.

The space on the rim of the record, where the needle is dropped by automatic mechanisms, is wider than on the usual record. That insures proper starting even though the turntable mechanism is not in perfect adjustment.

The universal groove is somewhat deeper than the usual micro-groove. It should be played with a micro-groove needle, but can be played with any good standard needle. Wide groove spacing is used to prevent breakthrough and to eliminate any possibility of echo. The original tape was recorded by Mr. J. W. Klein of Maas-Rowe Carillons, who supervised the installation of the Vibrachime carillon at Mission San Juan Capistrano.
* So, listen here this old mission bells’ version of “La Golondrina” of Narciso Serradell Sevilla. Enjoy! *

San Juan Capistrano, California, is located in Orange County, and is located on Metrolink’s Orange Subdivision, the former Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway (AT&SF) line between their mainline at Fullerton and San Diego.

The station sees about 24 Amtraks (Pacific Surfliner) and 16 Metrolinks (Inland Empire & Orange County lines) each weekday.

About 4 BNSF freight trains run overnight from Barstow, CA, to San Diego. They do not pass through Fullerton, as they must use the Olive Sub 5 miles east, at Atwood Junction.

The station was built in 1894 by the Santa Fe, in their typical Mission Style.

This is a designated quiet zone (QZ), but crews can use the horns at their discretion anytime. The crossing seen in camera view is no longer a street, and is now pedestrian-only.

There is an ATCS layout, but with little to no data (server) coverage.

The camera is a 360, providing full range of motion when an operator is present.

When’s the next train? Yeah, we get this a lot. You can figure out the next Amtrak passenger train with this handy, link:

There’s no schedule for freight trains, but some of our more knowledgeable members will provide real-time information when it’s available. Please refrain from asking.
