(back) Subject: "This Little Light of Mine" From: <DRAWKNOB@aol.com> Date: Sun, 19 Nov 2000 20:03:40 EST   Hello all,   I've been off the list for quite awhile because my schedule has been so hectic I've not been able to keep up with the posts.... Anyhow, I need = some help.   The children of my parish are going to be doing a Christmas program in = lieu of liturgy on the 3rd Sunday in Advent (I have no say in it and I'll = reserve comment); however, the theme of the program is the light of Christ coming into the world and I was told that I have to play a prelude and postlude = on the old Sunday school hymn "This little light of mine". I have tried a = few searches online and I can't find a thing. Does anyone know if there are = any organ works on this little ditty? Any suggestions?   Thanks,   John A.

(back) Subject: Re: Organ Building during WWII From: "Nelson Denton" <ndenton@cgocable.net> Date: Sun, 19 Nov 2000 20:52:19 -0500   In Canada organ production was also severly curtailed. Both in WW1 and WW2 my family's company was almost completely shut down due to the fact that the entire workforce was in the armed forces including my father and all = my uncles and great uncles . ( remember like Europe, Canada was at war much longer than the U.S. was and thus suffered much greater shortages in materials and workforces.) Granddad was the only one left working in our firm during both wars. He was in the army himself during both wars but = was refused active duty due to a heart condition. He served as a bandsman in the local recruiting armouries boosting morale and helping with the training of the troops. All his spare time was spent servicing the organs = in our area. ( probably about 200). Grandad was forced to service and build organs using whatever bits and pieces he could salvage from old = instruments and he was forced to use such things as soup cans for tuning slides! Most supplies such as wire, wood, glues, paints, metals were totally = non-existant for purchase.Gas rationing prevented most companies from traveling about the country so a mutual support pact was formed where each company looked after all the organs in their own area and gave the others in other areas the service rights to theirs. Even after the 2nd World War -well into the 1950's, most Canadian organ companies were working with almost no supplies of any kind. I service a few Casavants and Woodstocks from the late = 1940's and the materials are extremely poor quality compared to the pre-war = times.. The same great skill was used but they were built from wood that was obviously recycled or full of knots and flaws. Pipework was also recycled and much was reused that should never have been. I've still got a letter from W. H. Reisner & Co. from well after the war stating the fact that they could not send out the order of ~200 electric valves that Granddad had ordered in 1942 for another 2 years or more due to war shortages!!   Sadly few companies were able to survive the combined toll of 2 World Wars and the Great Depression. 30 years of constant upheaval destroyed almost = all of them. History records over 100 piano and organ companies in Canada folded during these years. Many were very large companies employing hundreds of people.   The 1950's didn't help the few who were left as the influx of cheap electronic substitutes and asian imports of cheap pianos made profits very slim.   Not one piano company survives today in Canada and the organ trade is also made up of almost all small family run companies.   A far cry from the 12+ major companies that existed in Hamilton alone at the turn of the century. Even the Encyclopeadia Brittanica referred to Hamilton as being major supplier of musical instruments to the world!   Now there are just the 2 of us. Janine and me.     Nelson Denton R. A.
