  Music Recording: [Sounds of the Barrel Organ] Lionel Hartley’s interest in organ building began in the middle of last century when he was invited to spend his school holidays working with a pipe-organ builder in New Zealand on the restoration of a church organ. From there he went on to re-build and fully restore a dilapidated old reed organ on his own. This then progressed to building barrel organs and other musical instruments from scratch. Over the years he built as many as seven working barrel organs. This recording is a compilation of pieces from one of his earlier instruments using hand-punched paper rolls. Recorded onto open reel tape in 1970, transferred to mp3 in 1999.  [Dur: 47min]
