David Bowie’s death has rightfully sparked a multitude of tributes, but this could be the most spine-tingling of them all.

Bells at a 634-year-old church tower in the Netherlands rang out the tune of his 1969 classic “Space Oddity” on Monday.

Marchal Molenaar filmed the wonderful rendition emanating from the Dom Tower in Utrecht and posted it to Facebook, where it’s going viral.

“What a beautiful tribute,” he wrote. “You just get goose bumps.”

Bowie died on Sunday, at age 69, following an 18-month battle with cancer. Multiple music artists and celebrities have tweeted about their sadness upon hearing the news.

Thousands of fans also held an impromptu, unofficial party to celebrate his life near his birthplace in Brixton, London, on Monday night. 

The Gothic-style Dom Tower is the Netherlands’ tallest church tower, standing at 368 feet. It was built between 1321 and 1382, according to Holland.com, and its 13 bells weigh 800 to 18,000 pounds.
