From the 16th century onwards, wealthy cities combined their clocks in churches and town halls with a carillon. In the picture you can see the carillon in the Munich town hall with the shepherd's dance.
In the 18th century, watchmakers began to build chimes into clocks that were operated with pin rollers. The independent profession of roller assembler emerged. Even Beethoven, Mozart and Haydn composed musical works for carillon and flute clocks.
