The Bells of Banff

The video features a school teacher in the Town of Banff, Alberta, Canada, named Heather Jean Jordan, who has been climbing the steeple of a local place of worship, St. George’s-in-the-Pines Anglican Church, each day since the Coronavirus outbreak shut so much down, and playing ‘Amazing Grace’ on the bells for anyone within ear range to hear. Enjoy the music and the natural beauty.
