* Catholic altar bells originated in the fifth Century when St. Paulinus, Bishop of Nola, introduced them as a means to summon monks to worship. Usually taking the four of four small bells, suspended on a cross of wood, altar bells can either be borrowed from a local church or ordered at a reasonable price online.
** The semantron, a long plank of wood suspended by ropes, is used in a variety of monasteries to summon monks to prayer at the start of a procession. The player can make a semantron by suspending a 1"x 6" plank of wood, lengthwise (about 6-8 feet), from cables. The player hits the semantron with heavy wooden mallets, and the resulting sound should be resonant.
