Bell music concert to be given in Kremlin on House of Romanov's 400th anniversary

Moscow, March 6, Interfax - Bell-ringers of the Moscow Kremlin will give an unprecedented bell music concert on the day marking the 400th anniversary of the House of Romanov.

"After a solemn patriarchal service on March 6 the "Tsar Toll" will be rung to celebrate the end of "chaos" 400 years ago and the enthronement of the new governing dynasty," Igor Konovalov, artistic director of bell music performances at the Moscow Kremlin and Christ the Savior Cathedral, told Interfax-Religion.

The 1,200-pound bell, Reut, cast in 1622, will be the leader and it will be struck 400 times.

"The Reut ringing was heard by all of the Romanov tsars, from Mikhail Fyodorovich to Nicholas II," he said.

The Reut is the main ringing monument of the Romanov family, Konovalov said. "It was cast on order from the young tsar Mikhail Fyodorovich and his father Patriarch Filaret, to mark success in overcoming the chaos. The bell was made by the legendary Russian caster Andrey Chokhov, who had also made bells and cannons for Ivan the Terrible, and tsars Fyodorov Ioanovich and Boris Godunov, and who immortalized the art of casting by making his Tsar Cannon.

Bell Reut survived the 1812 Patriotic War when the belfry of the Assumption belfry was blown up. The bell fell for a second time during the coronation of Alexander II.

That about sums it up Cory,true...Hence my "almost"...tout le Gotha...grin...Btw,the Reigning Families could never attend this sort of events as they're all on "friendly terms with present Republic of Russia",and gatherings like this should be seen as coleur locale and a revival of historical events only.Even tho I admire the Romanovs,but that doesn't include some of the present family members....same is the case with most other Families too tho...

Cory 10-01-2013 07:18 AM

All the members of the Russian Imperial Family were present due to the fact that the only members today are HIH Grand Duchess Maria and HIH Grand Duke George.
I wonder why Crown Prince Alexander of Serbia, Crown Princess Margareta of Romania did not attend.

No reigning House should have accepted her Invitation no other Romanovs were there too.
Does that mean the the non reigning royals accept her as official Heiress ?

maria-olivia 10-01-2013 09:37 AM

A lot of theses guests attended the royal Egyptian wedding in Istambul .
Our Princess Lea did not attend this event ?

I think Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna is recognised as the Head of the Imperial House and Empress de jure of Russia by most of the Reigning and Non-Reigning Houses.

I know that Prince Luiz, Head of the Brazilian Imperial House, recognizes her.

In other words, a bunch of people like Maria who cling to a long forgotten past but have no real role or function in the 21st century.

Very good. Aptly stated.

That's untrue.

Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna, the Duke of Braganza, Crown Prince Leka and the Crown Prince Alexander all have some kind of official role with the Governments of their countries.

Also, those people have an ideal: they want to spend their lives fighting for Restore their Monarchies.

How would you feel if someone on Internet said that you have no "real role or function"? You should be ashamed to say such a thing about people you don't even know.

NGalitzine 10-01-2013 05:54 PM

Lets just say I found the gathering less than impressive. Usually one can at least drag a Kent out to such functions but Maria couldn't even manage that. And no I feel absolutely no shame in saying what I originally said nor do I feel any need to feel shame at all. Sorry if that offends your delicate sensibilities but I prefer to live in the real world of the 21st century and not hold out hopes of bringing back the 19th or even the early 20th centuries.

For God's sake, that's the first time I saw someone proud to be a hopeless ill-mannered person, who is totally unable to respect other people.

Last time I checked, Monarchies were compatible with the 21th century.

Sure, just not in Russia, Serbia, Yugoslavia (which no longer exists), Montenegro, Albania or Egypt, all of which have seen fit to toss their monarchs out a long time ago and through all of their political ups and downs have not seen fit to place them back on their thrones. So yes monarchies are compatible with the 21st century in those countries that have seen fit to retain such monarchies but not in countries where they saw fit to toss them out.
As for calling me ill mannered well I guess such a statement says more about yourself than it does about me but will leave it at that. No need to toss a glove in your face or suggest pistols in the park at dawn.

COUNTESS 10-01-2013 08:04 PM

First of all, NGalitzine is hardly ill manned. You Brazilian Empire are quite delusional. No one is restoring ancient monarchies. The monarchies that exist, today, have, by reason of changing to being Constitutional and workable for their nations, some what show pieces, including Britain. The monarchies you seem to think of, are long past. Maria is a joke, from another century, but she has nothing else and it is sad. Now, she wants to destroy her son's life. If the monarchies, today, do not fit the people needs, and the real governments' of those countries needs, they would be out. They marry "Commoners", because being "royal" is a hoax, by your standards. Brazil is a thriving nation, today. I hope your royal family have money or jobs, they aren't coming back.
