In 1926 the Casavant Frres Organ Company of Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, founded in 1879, was
commissioned by Saint James Methodist-Episcopal Church, 4611 South Ellis Avenue, Chicago, to build a new
pipe organ to replace the organ lost when the previous church burned in 1925. This 1926 organ project was
directed by Miss Tina Mae Haines, the organist of the church, who had studied under a famous church
musician, the renowned Parisian organist and
composer Flix-Alexandre Guilmant.

This organ was dedicated in memory of Gustavus
F. Swift, Founder of the Swift Meat-Processing
Company, and was given by Ann Higgins Swift, his
widow, and by their children.

Miss Tina Mae Haines used her knowledge of the
great Cavaill-Coll Organs, which dominate the
City of Paris, in helping Casavant to construct an
organ which would reflect the highest quality of
craftsmanship. As a consequence, this Casavant
organ incorporates some pipework from the
famous French Organ-Builder Aristide Cavaill-

A musical force in Chicago in the early twentieth
century, Miss Tina Mae Haines helped found
Chicagos Sherwood Conservatory, where she
served as a professor. She also collaborated with
the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in giving
lectures on opera and musical history, and was an
accomplished conductor and organist.

This 1926 Casavant Organ, Opus 1130, became
one of the prominent concert organs of Chicago,
and the famous Parisian organist and composer
Marcel Dupr, a personal friend of Miss Haines,
frequently concertized on this organ and gave it
great acclaim.

Over time this Casavant organ fell into disuse as
Saint James Church went into decline. In 2011, as
Saint James was closing, Stephen Schnurr of the
Organ Historical Society and Jeff Weiler, of J.L.
Weiler, Inc., a Chicago based Organ Restorer and
Conservator, approached me about the possibility
of acquiring this organ for Saint John Cantius
Church, which was in need of a pipe organ that
could serve the needs of the churchs musical

7 | P a g e

In 2011, the Patrons of Sacred Music, the volunteer organization at Saint John Cantius which promotes the
restoration of the sacred through music, worked in harmony with the Northern Illinois United Methodist
Conference to purchase this organ.

The organs removal from Saint James Church was timely, as the ceiling over the organ was beginning to
collapse, and rain was leaking into the organ chambers, subjecting the organ to irreparable damage. The
organ was then placed into the very capable hands of Casavant Frres and J.L. Weiler for historic restoration.
Part of the 1926 Casavant returned to
Quebec to the same room where the
organ was made. Other parts of the
Casavant Opus 1130 went to the Weiler
studio in Chicagos south loop for
restoration. In 2013, the organs
historical restoration is complete. The
results are stunning.

The Patrons of Sacred Music became
responsible to raise the funds for the
$1.5 million restoration of the Casavant
Organ, Opus 1130, and for the costs of
the refurbishment of the organ loft. To
accomplish this monumental project, the
Patrons of Sacred Music needed
heavens help.

Relying entirely upon the assistance of
the Blessed Virgin Mary, Rev. Scott A. Haynes, S.J.C., Chaplain of the Patrons of Sacred Music, place the
contract for restoration I had signed, on Our Ladys Altar, praying to the Mother of God to direct this project
and its every detail. By the goodness of our Lord Jesus Christ, and His Mother Mary, and through their
intercession, the Patrons obtained all the funds needed for the completion of this project, as Savior and
Blessed Lady inspired the generosity of over three hundred members of the Patrons of Sacred Music to
support this worthy endeavor.

When the reconstruction of the organ loft was completed in Lent of 2013, Mr. Thomas Diez, Facilities
Manager of Saint John Cantius, who assisted the Patrons of Sacred Music in this project in many ways, filled
the newly constructed organ loft with hundreds of Miraculous Medals of Our Lady, Holy Rosaries and Brown
Scapulars of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which Rev. Scott A. Haynes, S.J.C. had blessed. Thus, this newly
restored Casavant Pipe organ rests upon Marys lap, just as Our Lord did in Bethlehem.

With this in mind, we name this Casavant Pipe Organ, Opus 1130, Tina Mae, to honor Miss Tina Mae
Haines. Furthermore, this name is most fitting, for Tina, the shortened form of the name Christina recalls
the name of Christ our High Eternal High Priest, just as Mae is a variant of the Holy Name of Mary.

As we hear the music of this organ, blessed on the Feast of Saint John Cantius,
October 20, 2013, by His Eminence, Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of
Chicago, we acknowledge how Our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus and Mary, the
Mother of God, have blessed this work, which has been undertaken to help restore
the sacred with the gift of music.

De-us, qui per Mo-ysen famulam tu-um tubas ad canendum super sacrificiis,

nomini tu-o offerendis, face-re praecepisti, quique per fili-os Isra-el in tubis

et cymbalis laudem tu-i nominis decantari volu- i-sti: bene dic, qaesumus,

V. Let us pray.
O God, who by Moses, your
servant, ordered the sound of
trumpets to accompany the
sacrifices offered to your
name, and willed that the
children of Israel sing praise
to your name with trumpets
and timbrels; we beg you to
bless this organ which we
dedicate to your service. And
grant that your faithful who
are gladdened with holy songs
here on earth may attain
everlasting gladness in
heaven; through our Lord
Jesus Christ thy Son, who
livest and reignest world
without end.

R. All: Amen.

The organ is sprinkled
with holy water.

Organist Thomas Schuster, who will play the 7:00 pm Organ Dedication Recital, is the first to have the honor of playing
the newly blessed organ. For the glory of God and to thrill our souls, he will play the great Carillon-Sortie of Mulet.

ORGAN: Carillon-Sortie, Henri Mulet

As a musical offering for the Lord the Festival Chorus, directed by Fr. Scott Haynes, S.J.C., and accompanied by Stephen
Alltop and Thomas Zeman, organists, sings the festive motet, Laudate Dominum, of Marcel Dupr, the foremost
French organ virtuoso of his time, a fine composer, and Professor of Organ at the Paris Conservatoire, who frequently
concertized on Casavants Opus 1130 in its earlier years.

CHOIR: Laudate Dominum, Op. 9, No. 4, Marcel Dupr (1886-1971)

O praise the Lord, all ye heathen: praise him, all ye nations. For his merciful kindness is ever more and more towards
us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. (Psalm 116, Vulgate).

We thank Our Lord Jesus Christ for blessing us through the intercession of His Mother, the Virgin Mary. It is by her
loving intercession that every obstacle has been overcome in achieving this organ restoration. May the choirs of angels
and the whole court of heaven join their voices to the sweet and rich tones which find voice in this organ.

HYMN: Immaculate Mary, Arr. Rev. Scott A. Haynes, S.J.C.

1. Immaculate Mary, thy praises we sing,
who reignest in heaven with Jesus our King.
Ave, Ave, Ave Mara! Ave, Ave Mara!

2. In heaven the blessed thy glory proclaim,
on earth we thy children invoke thy fair name.
Ave, Ave, Ave Mara! Ave, Ave Mara!

3. Thy name is our power, thy virtues our light,
thy love is our comfort, thy pleading our might.
Ave, Ave, Ave, Mara! Ave, Ave, Mara!

4. We pray for our Mother, the Church upon Earth:
and bless dearest Lady, the Land of our birth.
Ave, Ave, Ave, Mara! Ave, Ave, Mara!
Marcel Dupr

PROCESSIONAL MOTET: O Lord, Our Governor, Healey Willan

O Lord, our Governor, how excellent is thy Name in all the world! Behold, O God our defender: and look upon the face
of thine Anointed. O hold thou up his goings in thy paths: that his footsteps slip not. Grant our Bishop a long life:
and make him glad with the joy of thy countenance. Save, Lord, and hear us, O King of heaven: when we call upon thee. Amen.
(Psalms 8:1, 84:9, 17:5, 61:6, 21:6, 20:9).

INTROIT: Misertio hminis circa prximum

Man may be merciful to his fellow man, but Gods mercy reaches all flesh. He has mercy, teaches and guides, as a shepherd does his
flock. (Sirach 18:12-13) Happy the man who follows not the counsel of the wicked nor walks in the way of sinners, nor sits in the
company of the insolent. (Ps. 1:1) Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy GhostAmen.

KYRIE & GLORIA: Messe Solennelle, Op. 16, Louis Vierne

Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord have mercy.

Glory be to God on high, and on earth peace to men of good will. We praise Thee. We
bless Thee. We adore Thee. We glorify Thee. We give Thee thanks for Thy great glory. O
Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father almighty. O Lord Jesus Christ, the only
begotten Son. O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father. Who takest away the sins of
the world, have mercy on us. Who takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayer.
Who sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For Thou only are holy.
Thou only art the Lord. Thou only art most high, O Jesus Christ. Together with the Holy
Ghost in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

COLLECT: Da, quaesumus, omnpotens Deus

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that by following the example of blessed John (Cantius), Thy Confessor, we may advance in
a knowledge of holiness and, by showing pity for others, obtain Your forgiveness through his merits Through Jesus Christ Amen.

EPISTLE: James 2:12-17

Dearly beloved: So speak and so act as en about to be judged by the law of liberty. For judgment is without mercy to him who
has not shown mercy; but mercy triumphs over judgment. What will it profit, my brethren, if a man says he has faith, but does
not have works? Can the faith save him? And if a brother or a sister be naked and in want of daily food, and one of you say to
them, Go in peace, be warmed and filled, yet you do not give them what is necessary for the body, what does it profit?
So faith too, unless it has works, is dead in itself.

GRADUAL: Confitentur Dmino misericrdi eius

Let them give thanks to the Lord for His kindness and His wondrous deeds to the children of men.
Because He satisfied the longing soul and filled the hungry soul with good things. (Ps 106:8-9)

ALLELUIA: Alleluia. Manum suam apruit nopi

Alleluia. Alleluia. He extends his arms to the needy, and reaches out his hands to the poor. Alleluia. (Proverbs 31:20).

HOLY GOSPEL: Luke 12:35-40

At that time, Jesus said to His disciples, Let your loins be girt about and your lamps
burning, and you yourselves like men waiting for their masters return from the
wedding; so that when he comes and knocks, they may straight-way open to him.
Blessed are those servants whom the master, on his return, shall find watching.
Amen I say to you, he will gird himself, and will make them recline at table, and
will come and serve them. And if he comes in the second watch, and if in the third,
and finds them so, blessed are those servants! But of this be assured, that if the
householder had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would certainly
have watched, and not have let his house be broken into. You also must be ready,
because at an hour that you do not expect, the Son of Man is coming.
Louis Vierne
18 | P a g e


I believe in one God, The Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord, Jesus Christ
the Only-begotten Son of God. Born of the Father before all ages. God of God, Light of Light, true God of True God. Begotten, not made, of
one substance with the Father. By whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven. And
became incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary: and became man. He was also crucified for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and
was buried. And on the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the
Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and His kingdom will have no end. And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord
and Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son. Who together with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, and who
spoke through the prophets. And one holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I await the
resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

As the collection is received, donations made to the Organ Fund will assist us to complete this project,
and to supply ongoing funding for the care and maintenance of the organ.

OFFERTORY CHANT: Iusttia indtus sum

I wore my honesty like a garment; justice was my robe and my turban. I was eyes to the blind, and feet
to the lame was I; I was a father to the needy. (Job 29:14-16).

OFFERTORY MOTET: Sacerdos et Pontifex, Charles-Marie Widor

Priest and Bishop, and worker of mighty things, and good shepherd among the people, pray for us to the Lord.


SANCTUS: Messe Solennelle, Op. 16, Louis Vierne

Holy, Holy Holy, Lord God of Hosts. Heaven and earth are full of thy glory. Hosanna in the highest.


He is The Bread sown in the virgin, leavened in the Flesh, molded in His Passion, baked in the furnace of the Sepulchre, placed in
the Churches, and set upon the Altars, which daily supplies Heavenly Food to the faithful. - St. Peter Chrysologus (400-450 A.D.)

We are as privileged in being called to adore Him today as were Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and Magi then, because here Jesus
continues His incarnation on earth. Here Jesus loses His Heart to us in love. Love expresses itself to the object of its affection; the
Eucharist is the continual expression of Gods perfect, unselfish love for man. The Word again becomes flesh and dwells among us,
veiled under the Species of the Sacred Host, where the same Jesus born two thousand years ago as a little babe in Bethlehem is
truly, really, bodily, and personally present to us in this Most Blessed Sacrament. - Venerable Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979 A.D.)

Qui prdie quam patertur, accpit panem in
sanctas ac venerbiles manus suas, Elevat oculos ad
coelum, ad te Deum, Patrem suum omnipotntem,
tibi grtias agens, bene dixit, fregit, dedtque
discpulis suis, dicens: Accpite, et manducte ex
hoc omnes.
Who, the day before He suffered, took bread into
His holy and venerable hands, and with His eyes
lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His
almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He
blessed it, broke it and gave it to His disciples
saying: Take and eat ye all of this,
Smili modo postquam coentum est, accpiens et
hunc prclrum Clicem in sanctas ac venerbiles
manus suas: tibi grtias agens, bene dixit, dedtque
discpulis suis, dicens: Accpite, et bbite ex eo
Hc quotiescmque fecritis, in mei
memriam facitis.
In like manner, after He had supped, taking also
this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable
hands He blessed, and gave it to His disciples,
saying: Take and drink ye all of this,

As often as ye do these things,

AGNUS DEI: Messe Solennelle, Op. 16, Louis Vierne
Lamb of God who take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Lamb of God who take away the sins of the world,
have mercy on us. Lamb of God who take away the sins of the world, grant us peace.


For Catholics: As Catholics, we fully participate in the celebration of the Eucharist when we receive Holy
Communion. We are encouraged to receive Communion devoutly and frequently. In order to be properly
disposed to receive Communion, participants should not be conscious of grave sin and normally should have
fasted for one hour. A person who is conscious of grave sin is not to receive the Body and Blood of the Lord
without prior sacramental confession except for a grave reason where there is no opportunity for confession.
In this case, the person is to be mindful of the obligation to make an act of perfect contrition, including the
intention of confessing as soon as possible (canon 916). A frequent reception of the Sacrament of Penance is
encouraged for all.
For our fellow Christians: We welcome our fellow Christians to this celebration of the Eucharist as our
brothers and sisters. We pray that our common baptism and the action of the Holy Spirit in this Eucharist will
draw us closer to one another and begin to dispel the sad divisions which separate us. We pray that these will
lessen and finally disappear, in keeping with Christ's prayer for us "that they may all be one" (Jn. 17:21).
Because Catholics believe that the celebration of the Eucharist is a sign of the reality of the oneness of faith,
life, and worship, members of those churches with whom we are not yet fully united are ordinarily not
admitted to Holy Communion. Eucharistic sharing in exceptional circumstances by other Christians requires
permission according to the directives of the diocesan bishop and the provisions of canon law (canon 844
Section 4). Members of the Orthodox Churches, the Assyrian Church of the East, and the Polish National
Catholic Church are urged to respect the discipline of their own Churches. According to Roman Catholic
discipline, the Code of Canon Law does not object to the reception of Communion by Christians of these
Churches (canon 844 Section 3).
For those not receiving Holy Communion: All who are not receiving Holy Communion are encouraged to
express in their hearts a prayerful desire for unity with the Lord Jesus and with one another.
For non-Christians: We also welcome to this celebration those who do not share our faith in Jesus Christ.
While we cannot admit them to Holy Communion, we ask them to offer their prayers for the peace and the
unity of the human family.

All: Amen.


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of
men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was
John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he
was to testify concerning the Light. That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in
the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him
not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born
not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (Here all kneel.) And the Word was made flesh, and
dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

RECESSIONAL HYMN: Crown him with many crowns, Arr. Rev. Scott A. Haynes, SJC

1. Crown him with many crowns, the Lamb upon his throne,
Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing of him who died for thee,
and hail him as thy matchless King through all eternity.

2. Crown Him the Virgins Son, the God incarnate born,
Whose arm those crimson trophies won which now His brow adorn;
Fruit of the Mystic Rose, as of that Rose the Stem;
The Root whence mercy ever flows, the Babe of Bethlehem.

3. Crown Him the Lord of peace, whose power a scepter sways
From pole to pole, that wars may cease, and all be prayer and praise.
His reign shall know no end, and round His piercd feet
Fair flowers of paradise extend their fragrance ever sweet.

4. Crown him the Lord of love; behold his hands and side,
Those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified.
No angel in the sky can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends his burning eye at mysteries so bright.

5. Crown him the Lord of life, who triumphed o'er the grave,
and rose victorious in the strife for those he came to save.
His glories now we sing, who died, and rose on high,
Who died, eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die.

The installation of a four-manual Casavant organ at St. John Cantius Church marks the first truly historic
restoration of a large, unaltered Casavant organ designed and built under the direction of the founders of the
world-renowned firm, which has occupied a prominent place in the organbuilding profession since the late
nineteenth century.

Historical Background

The organ we just restored for and installed at St. John Cantius is the 1130th commission received by
Casavant Frres since its founding in 1879. The organ was originally installed in 1926 in the then newly built
St. James M. E. Church, located at the corner of Ellis Avenue and 46th Street in Chicago. The organ contract,
for the sum of $28,890, was signed the previous year for a four-manual, 56-stop instrument, plus a 61-note
Deagan Harp and 25-note Deagan Chimes (both operated by Casavant-made actions). Interestingly, the
former St. James Church, which was destroyed by a fire in April 1924, was the home of a four-manual
Casavant organ built in their South Haven, Michigan shop in 1915.

Opus 1130 is intimately related to Tina May Haines, organist at St. James Church. A former student of the
famous French organist, Alexandre Guilmant, Ms. Haines was a respected church musician at her time. She
was instrumental in having the church select Casavant for this important project.

Historical Significance

How many unaltered four-manual, 85-year old pipe organs can we visit nowadays in large urban areas? For
Casavant, Opus 1130 was the 37th four-manual organ installed in the United States (first installation in New
York City in 1903). To our knowledge, there are very few unaltered four-manual organs left from the
Casavant brothers years in the United States, and certainly none for hundreds of miles around Chicago.

Of note is the use of electro-pneumatic, pitman-type windchests for the entire organ, which was an
uncommon practice for Casavant at that time. The Casavant brothers were fond of their patented ventil-type
windchests, which the firm used routinely until 1933, the very year Claver Casavant, the founding president,
passed away.

What We Found at St. James Church

We made a comprehensive evaluation of the organ at St. James Church in February 2011. This enabled us to
determine 1) the exceptional value of this Casavant organ;
2) that, with carefully planned work, it was possible to restore the organ to its original condition; and 3) how
to divide the work between our two firms to achieve the best results possible.

Basically, we found the organ as it was installed in 1926. We were amazed to see that all the original material
was there. The pipework, which was in excellent condition, was still equipped with its original tuning devices
(scrolls, etc.). However, the organ, which had probably never been cleaned in 85 years, was terribly dirty and
had not been maintained for many years. There had been significant water damage in the Swell division
coming from a leaking roof.

At St. James Church, the organ was installed in two chambers on either side of the chancel (Great, Choir and
Pedal divisions in the south chamber; Swell and Solo divisions in the north chamber), with the Echo located in
an elevated chamber on the south side of the back gallery. A visit to St. John Cantius to take complete
30 | P a g e

measurements of the back gallery and the north transept enabled us to do a space study, which confirmed
that the organ could be reinstalled successfully.

Restoration Process

After reaching agreements with St. John Cantius in July 2011, our crews worked together to remove the
entire organ from St. James Church. This huge task was made even more daunting by the fact that the ceiling
of both organ chambers threatened to collapseit had to be supported temporarily during the removal
process. In order to undertake this historic restoration with a common understanding of the goals, approach,
and techniques to be used, Jeff Weiler made a special trip to Saint-Hyacinthe for a full day of productive
discussions with all the Casavant craftspeople involved in the project.

The JL Weiler team was responsible for restoring all the pipework (repair damaged pipes, recondition all reed
stops, repack stoppers, etc.), the original Casavant Supremo blower, the Harp, and the Chimes. The
Casavant team was in charge of restoring the organ chassis (windchests, wind system, expression),
replicating the ruined Swell windchest, reconfiguring the organ layout for installation in the back gallery at
St. John Cantius, which involved modifications to the framework, expressions enclosures, and windlines,
building new casework for both the main organ in the gallery and the Echo organ in the transept, and
rebuilding the original console.

After the organ chassis was assembled in the Casavant ateliers, the JL Weiler and Casavant teams met in
Saint-Hyacinthe in April 2013 to plan the upcoming installation at St. John Cantius.

Our crews worked together to install the organ at St. John Cantius Church, in June and July 2013. While the
hot summer days made this complex task even more demanding, the work was done very efficiently, thanks
to the careful planning and ongoing dialogue with the good people of St. John Cantius.

After the installation was completed, Jeff Weiler did the tonal finishing of the organ on site, a painstaking
process that involves cautious listening to make sure every pipe speaks well in its new home. In other words,
recapturing the organs original voice. In the sumptuous acoustics of St. John Cantius, Opus 1130 sounds
better than ever!


Restoring Opus 1130 has been a fascinating journey for our teams, who shared their respective expertise, and
have complemented each other admirably in this multifaceted mission. We humbly believe that the outcome
of this historic restoration speaks for itself.

We want to salute the vision of St. John Cantius Churchs leadership, especially Fr. Frank Phillips and Fr. Scott
Haynes, for making the decision of saving this historically significant Casavant organ, and for their much
appreciated confidence in our abilities. We also want to express special thanks to Mr. Thomas Diez, Facilities
Manager at St. John Cantius, for his outstanding guidance and exceptional collaboration throughout the
entire restoration process.

It is our hope this remarkable pipe organ will not only serve this parish but will also become a tool for
outreach to the entire Chicago area.

The decade of the 1920s was an exciting era for organ building in Chicago. Large concert and church organs
were commissioned and installed with great frequency. One could tour the city and test brand new organs by
Americas best known builders in the First Presbyterian Church (both in its Bronzeville church and, later that
decade, in its present Woodlawn neighborhood edifice), Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, Saint Mary of
Perpetual Help Catholic Church, and the Hyde Park Presbyterian Church, to name a few.

Saint James Methodist Episcopal Church, located since 1895 at South Ellis Avenue and East Forty-Sixth Street
in Kenwood, was then rising from the ashes of a catastrophic fire to build a grand new Gothic edifice of stone
and brick to the designs of Chicagos Tallmadge & Watson. A growing, wealthy congregation whose roster
included the great commerce families of Harris and Swift, among others, Saint James determined to build as
complete a campus as could be conceived for a Protestant church of that era. The expansive building included
numerous classrooms, meeting spaces, lounges, an auditorium, and a gymnasium, in addition to a
monumental nave to seat approximately 700 persons.

The long-time organist of Saint James, Tina Mae Haines, arguably one of the citys finest, in a manner just as
determined as the churchs Board of Trustees, ensured the new church would be graced with a large and
complete organ built by Casavant, the firm that had supplied a four-manual organ for the building that had
burned. Haines campaigned vigorously for the organ contract to be awarded to Casavant rather than another
firm that was decidedly more popular among other wealthy congregations. The Swift family was instrumental
in funding both Casavant organs, as well as an organ in their previous church, Union Avenue Methodist
Episcopal Church.

In the 1920s, Saint John Cantius Catholic Church, to the north, ordered a new organ from Geo. Kilgen & Son
of Saint Louis, Missouri, for its equally glorious 1890s church designed by Chicagos Alphonse Druiding.
This organ would replace (and perhaps include some pipework from) A. B. Felgemaker & Son opus 723,
installed in the upper gallery in 1900.

Both new organs served very active church music programs. The Saint James organ became well known and
respected, not only for its part in a multiple choir program, but also as a concert instrument. In 1937, Marcel
Dupr of Paris played a recital where the audience filled every seat of the spacious St. James Methodist

The two congregations changed dramatically over the next several generations. For a time, the populations of
both declined. Fortunately, Saint John Cantius Church has experienced an extraordinary resurgence. Sadly,
that did not happen at Saint James Church.

I first visited Saint James Church in 1997 and became acquainted with some of the church members. The
Chicago chapters of the American Guild of Organists and the Organ Historical Society included the organ in
its Organ Crawl of March 1998. While water damage was already taking its toll on the instrument, all
present reveled in the exquisite sounds. Many recalled the organs glory days with organists Bethuel Gross
and George Williams. Amazingly, the congregation and the organists all respected the instrument and never
altered it, despite changing tastes of the times.

Saint James Church held its final service on December 26, 2010. Andrew Szymanski, a friend who had
informed me of the churchs impending closure, joined me that day at Saint James. At the conclusion of the
service, we gathered around the organ console and sang hymns, ending with Abide with Me, and the
Hallelujah Chorus of George Frederick Handel. This was the first time the organ had been used in many years.

33 | P a g e

The loss of Saint James Church was emotional to church members present that day. Faced with the loss of
their spiritual home as well as an historic building, several faithful commented that if one thing were to
survive the closure, they hoped it would be their beloved pipe organ that had accompanied them through
times of joy and sorrow. There were many tears shed that day.

I have been privileged to participate in a number of projects to relocate endangered organs in the past twenty
years. It usually takes several years to accomplish this task, and all too often, orphaned organs do not find a
new home. Having contacted the Methodist Conference to begin to find a new home, the question became,
how do I get the word out that yet another great organ needs relocation?

There are surely moments when one feels the hand of God guiding. Amazingly, I made one telephone call, to
Jeff Weiler, a call that immediately began the process leading to todays dedication.

The stories of Saint John Cantius Catholic Church and the former Saint James Methodist Church now share
an amazing juncture. Today begins a new era for Casavant opus 1130, fully restored and ready to lead music
to the glory of God for generations to come, to once again become one of Chicagos finest concert organs (in a
better acoustic than experienced at Saint James), an instrument that begins a new era in the same city where
it was dedicated nearly ninety years ago. What an extraordinary gift of past generations that has now been
preserved for present and future generations in glorious sounds of worship!

Mary Willan Mason, the daughter of the late composer and
organist Healey Willan, has managed the Musical Estate of Healey
Willan, fostering his music, managing royalties, permissions and
copyrights, etc. since his death in 1968. With great zeal and
fervor, she has tirelessly promoted his music in publications,
recordings and in performances.

In June, 2011, Mary Willan Mason assigned the responsibility of
continuing the musical legacy of Healey Willan to the Canons
Regular of St. John Cantius in Chicago, Illinois, USA, by legally
entrusting his musical estate to the Canons. Fr. Scott A. Haynes,
S.J.C., a priest of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, Chaplain
to the Patrons of Sacred Music, and director of the Resurrection
Choir and Orchestra, as well as of the Cantate Domino Choir at
St. John Cantius Church in Chicago, has been placed in charge of
the musical estate of Healey Willan.

The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius has formed the Healey
Willan Society in consultation with Mrs. Mary Willan Mason, for
the purpose of fostering the musical heritage of Healey Willan.
While Maestro Willans music is known and loved by church
choirs, organists and instrumental ensembles, much of his music
in no longer in print or has never been published. After Johann
Sebastian Bach, Healey Willan is the most prolific composer of
church music. It is the goal of the Healey Willan Society to bring
back into print as many musical works of Healey Willan as

These Willan musical works are to be
available at, the
webstore of Biretta Books, the publishing
house of the Canons Regular of St. John
Cantius & Patrons of Sacred Music.
Recently Biretta Books has republished two
of Willans Masses and created a new
English version of his famous Missa de
Sancta Maria Magdalena in D. The Healey
Willan Society will foster an increase in the
public performance of his musical works in
churches, concert halls, etc., will produce
audio recordings, and promote Maestro
Willan through film, radio, the Internet and
television, etc. Today we are honored to
have Mary Willan Mason as our special
guest as we hear two of Willans famous

I guess there is romance associated
with being the starving artist.
But, in reality, musicians need to
make a living like everyone else.
Church musicians make large
sacrifices of their time and talent
throughout the liturgical year so
that our ears can be enriched with

sacred chant and polyphony.
Sadly, the organists, singers and
orchestral musicians who render
the musical offering before Gods
holy altar are rarely compensated
according to the professional level
of their musicianship. And in
many places their talents are not
appreciated at all, nor is the
Churchs patrimony of music.

But here at St. John Cantius, we
want to provide the most beautiful gems from the Catholic treasury of sacred music so that the sense of the
sacred can be restored through the awesome gift of music. This means the Church needs your ongoing
financial support in order to provide for the needs
of our organists, vocalists and orchestral
musicians. The composer Franz Haydn relied
upon the support of the wealthy Esterhazy family.
One of Mozarts patrons was Emperor Joseph II,
the Musical King, who steered Austria into high
culture through the arts.

Since there arent many princes left to approach
today, it is now the role to the common man to be
a patron of the arts through donations large or
small. Your donations to the Patrons of Sacred
Music fund the choir and orchestra which sings
the beautiful sacred Masses of Mozart, Haydn,
Palestrina, Victoria, etc. each week at St. John
Cantius. And your donations to the Organ Fund
will maintain this great Casavant Organ for
generations to come. For more information
