The last time Felix was here, he played in a carpeted Methodist church and managed to make a smaller Reuter (III/36) sound bearable.     Cheers,   Peter   P.S.

Let me begin by correcting one common misconception, the name is Bruce Bengtson (Swedish -- son of Bengt), not Bengston. Also, = there are two Bruce Bengtsons, both fine organists, and this one is Bruce P. Bengtson. (The other one is Bruce A.)   The history of the church and organ may be summarized thuswise. The = church was founded in 1762 as St. Mary's, Reading, and the first Rector was a Scotsman, the Rev. Dr. Alexander Murray, sent over by the Church of England's "Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts". = In 1771 Dr. Murray was nominated by King George III to be the first Bishop of Virginia, but owing to opposition in the colonies and in the English Parliament to the idea of bishops in the colonies, the appointment was subsequently cancelled. Upon the outbreak of the Revolutionary War in = 1776, Dr. Murray was forced to flee to Bermuda (where his wife's family had = sugar plantations), but in 1791 returned and resumed his ministry as Rector. He died ministering to the sick in the Philadelphia yellow fever outbreak of 1797.   For some reason the dedication of the church was changed from St. Mary's = to Christ Church, Reading, when the present building was dedicated in 1825. Substantial additions to this were made in the 1860's, including the tower and spire, to the designs of Edward Tuckerman Potter. From 1871 until = 1897 Christ Church, Reading, was the Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania, but in the latter year the diocese was split between Harrisburg and Bethlehem, so Christ Church went back to being a parish church, though it still has the old bishop's throne and crozier.   The first organ was obtained secondhand in 1851 from St. James' Church in Lancaster. It appears to have been a one manual instrument, but nothing further is known about it.   In 1866 Christ Church obtained a new two manual organ from William A. Johnson of Westfield, Mass. This was a tracker instrument, divided on either side of the chancel, and the conduit still exists under the chancel floor that conveyed the action across the chancel to the Swell Organ. A handful of pipes from the Johnson organ survive in the present instrument. The Johnson organ was electrified by White of Philadelphia around the year 1900.   In 1912 the Eckert family, who owned iron mines on the lower slopes of = Mount Penn where Eckert Avenue is now, donated a new three manual Austin organ, also divided either side of the chancel. This was rebuilt by Austin with considerable tonal revision in 1958.   In 1976, with the then newly-appointed organist Bruce Bengtson as consultant, the Austin organ was rebuilt as a 60 rank neo-baroque = instrument was the Lehigh Organ Company (John Gumpey). Since then I believe there = have been a few further changes, such as the addition of a 32' Contra Posaune = to the Pedal, a new organ grille, and modernization of the console.   I know all this because I was for seven years a member of the church ...   John Speller
