Named for the planet which was named for the ancient Roman messenger god. The
Chimes of Mercury is named for the innermost planet in our solar system
which, in turn, was named for the ancient Roman messenger god. Mercury
is similar in appearance to the Moon, with lots of craters. Because it
is normally not visible because of the glare of the Sun, Mercury can be
viewed on in the morning or at twilight.
This chime is designed
and handcrafted for superior musical performance. It is hand-tuned to a
universal, pentatonic (five-note) scale and acts in concert with the
wind to create random patterns of wonderful sound. Harmonizes
beautifully with all the other Encore Collection chimes.
