John Reading

Biography

As an organist for Dulwich University and St. John’s in Hackney Reading was known for his skill and flexibility. His playing way, however, was as well light for worship providers at Hackney. He was dismissed and eventually gained work in London on the mixed churches of St. Mary Woolnoth and St. Mary Woolchurch Haw in addition to St. Dunstan’s-in-the-West. Reading kept these positions until his loss of life. He had not been just known for his playing abilities also for compositions including anthems, transcriptions, a lot of which he copied 3 x with three different models of ornaments, and key pad compositions for the body organ as well as for the harpsichord. Reading’s initial publication was “A Reserve of New Tracks” inspired by Italian strategies which he hoped would promote English musicians to advance in their composing skills. Body organ compositions by Reading are worth attention.
