Concertina Music

We were a part of a special presentation this week at THQ when the family of Lt. Commissioner John Blake donated his concertina and case to our museum. Blake was a war hero and chaplain in the Australian Army in World War II. His service in the military was a credit to his faith as was his commensurate service as a Salvation Army officer.

He traveled well with his concertina with which he praised the Lord at a moment's notice to the delight of his company of friends. On this day we sang to the music of three concertina musicians and it was heart warming. Stop by the museum on Bourke Street and check out the exhibit.

Psalms 95:1 (NIV)
1 Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
