Christ Church Phila.
Organ & Bells of Christ Church, Philadelphia
Alexander McCurdy (ed)
Music has adorned the worship of Christ Church since its earliest days in pre-Revolutionary America. The playing of its organs & the ringing of its bells were known & well-loved by parishioners & citizens of the growing colonial city over two centuries ago. In all, there have been four different organs housed in the sanctuary of Christ Church, now standing since the late 1720s as an outstanding example of Colonial architecture in the Georgian spirit. This booklet discusses the organs & features photographs of the current organ, The Curtis Memorial Organ, installed in 1935 by Ernest Skinner of Boston & renovated in 1972 by Brantley Duddy, Inc. It also discusses the history of Christ Churchís bells, allied with our countryís most famous symbol of revolution & freedom, The Liberty Bell.
