To celebrate the 400 year anniversary of Gothenburg the anniversary song ”Vi vill leva, vi vill dö i Göteborg” (We want to live, we want to die in Gothenburg) by Katarina Hemlin will be played by the carillon of Cerman Christinae church every day throughout 2021. The time 16.21 is symbolic, chosen to draw attention to the year 1621, when the city was founded.
The carillon consists of 42 bells and on a quiet day the music is heard all over the city. Apart from the anniversary song, the usual hymns are also played four times every day – at 9.05, 12.05, 15.05 (3.05 pm) and 18.05 (6.05 pm). On Sundays the 12.05 tolling is suspended.
