"Das neunstimmige Geläute des Domes wurde von Hermann Große in Dresden 1877 gegossen. Das Gesamtgewicht der Glocken beträgt 23.384,5 kg, davon entfällt die Hälfte auf die Gloriosa. Im Jahr 1987 mussten Gloriosa und Bartholomäus wegen Gussfehlern aufgeschweißt werden, wodurch sich auch ihre Abklingdauer um jeweils 60 Sekunden verlängerte..

Vier der Glocken dienen dem Uhrschlag: Den Viertelstundenschlag geben die Kleinste Glocke und Johannes (9 und 7), den vollen Stundenschlag Salveglocke und Bartholomäus an (4 und 3).

Der Dom erhielt 2005 zwei Dachreiterglocken, die 2004 von der Gießerei Petit & Gebr. Edelbrock in Gescher gegossen wurden. Sie dienen als Messglocken und sind nicht Bestandteil des Stadtgeläutes."
