The Christ Church M.P. Möller
Pipe Organ

 M.P. Möller

Christ Church is fortunate to have an excellent pipe organ, manufactured by M.P. Möller in Hagerstown, Maryland.

Möller organs went in to bankruptcy in the early 1990's and was purchased by a man who renamed it "King of Instruments".  They only built 3 organs.  This new company could not recover from the debt incurred, as Möller organs was dying and folded.

Allen Organ Company of Macungie, Pennsylvania, purchased the Möller Factory Records and the Opus List of all organs manufactured during the bankruptcy sale in Hagerstown.  This was done so that Allen would have a list of organs installed, their specifications and means and methods for contacting owners so that Allen could replace consoles, add electronic voices, etc.

The Christ Church Möller Organ, OPUS 11155, was manufactured in 1976 and dedicated on September 19, 1976.  The organ was dedicated in memory of the persons and other loved ones listed below.

Our original bells were built and installed in 1953 by Schulmerich Carillons, Inc., of Sellersville, Pennsylvania.   Schulmerich is now located near Syracuse, New York.  These bells were electronic, and were mounted on the top of the roof near the cross of the transept. 

The bells were replaced by a modern electronic system also produced by Schulmerich in 2003.  They were given to Christ Church by Dr. Brookins and Charlotte Taylor, and dedicated in memory of Virginia and Peter Dick Woods, parents of Charlotte Taylor.
