About Salvator

Salvator is an online platform for carillonneurs that promotes sharing and open culture in the global carillon community. Inspired by the success of sharing-based websites like Wikipedia, Youtube, and IMSLP, the Flemish Carillon Society launched Salvator in April 2017 to help bring the carillon world into the 21st century and provide carillonneurs with a means of sharing their own arrangements and compositions with each other. Since then, the site’s features have expanded to include a library of public domain carillon compositions, a database of carillon-related links and a global carillon events calendar. In addition, Salvator is open to helping all carillonneurs who want to start their own carillon-related databases and start gathering data, on their own or with the help of Salvator users. 

Salvator has over 120 users from around the world, and membership continues to grow. Salvator users not only get access to a library of over 200 user-created arrangements and compositions, but they also benefit from the rich metadata saved with each piece, allowing one to easily search for music and filter results by genre, setting (solo/duet/carillonPlus), carillon size, range, missing bass tones, and more. Pieces can be bookmarked for later or saved to personal playlists. In keeping with the site’s culture of sharing, users are encouraged to contribute their own compositions and arrangements to help expand the Salvator library.

The site’s administrators work constantly to improve Salvator’s existing features and develop new ones in order to help Salvator become a central hub for the sharing of carillon-related knowledge and resources. Questions, feedback, and ideas for collaboration are always welcome. Membership is open to everyone and costs 15 euros ($18) per year to cover the maintenance costs of the site.
