Can't find anything on the second one, but the other seems to have been recorded by a large number of performers. Wilma and Stoney Cooper for one, Tex Ritter for another. It was written by Frank "Hylo" Brown.

When It's Lamp Lighting Time In The Valley
Frank "Hylo" Brown

Oh there's a lamp shining bright in a cabin
In a window it's shining for me
Then I know that my mother is praying
For the boy she is longing to see
 
Chorus
When it's lamp lighting time in the valley
In my dreams I go back to my home
Oh I can see that old lamp in the window
It will guide me wherever I roam
 
Oh when the lamp lights tonight I can see her
As she rocks in her chair to and fro
Though she's praying that I'll come back to see her
And I know that I never can go

Tex Ritter & His Friends recorded "When It's Lamp Lighting Time in the Valley" in 1939 as Decca single #5648. Tex Ritter's is now available in Songs of The West, vol. 2 (Rhino R2 71263), where the credit goes to "Lyons & Hart."

The other song seems to be Eddy Arnold's "The Voice in the Old Village Choir," released in 1962 by RCA. His discography is HERE.

WHEN IT'S LAMP LIGHTING TIME IN THE VALLEY
The info I have on this tune is as follows
It was written and recorded by Curt Poulton & Herald Goodman in 1933

There's a lamp shining bright in a cabin
In the window it is shining for me
And I know that my mother is praying
For the boy she is longing to see.

CHORUS: When it's lamp lighting time in the valley
Then in dreams I go back to my home
I can see that old lamp in the window
It will guide me wherever I roam.

In the lamp light each night I can see her
As she rocks in her chair to and fro
Though she prays that I'll come back to see her
Still I know that I never can go. CHORUS

She lights up the lamp and sits waiting
For she knows not the crime I have done
But I'll change all my ways and I'll meet her
Up in heaven when life's race is run. CHORUS

The Browns also recorded a song called "The Old Village Choir" (Singer) It appears on their 8-CD set "The Three Bells". Barnes&Noble has a sound sample, from which I transcribed:

"...to sing in the old village choir.
In pigtails and big bows, your eyes all aglow,
I held your hand as we sang.
While the congregation..."

"The Voice in the Old Village Choir" (by Gus Kahn and Harry Woods) was recorded by Eddy Arnold on the albums "In the Chapel" and "Sunday with Eddy Arnold & Jim Reeves". It is also on the album "Double Barrel Country: The Legends of Country Music".

This page says it was recorded in 1926 by the Majestic Dance Orchestra with vocalist Harold Van Emburgh.

The Frank Gullo Sheet Music Collection at Millersville University has the sheet music. They will photocopy it for a fee, if it's not under copyright, but their index dates it to 1932, not 1926, so there may be a problem with copyright.

OLD VILLAGE CHOIR

Guy Singer
© Writer Share, PD

How well I remember soft nights in September
And the songs of the old village choir
The church in the valley as we joined in the rally
To sing in the old village choir

In pigtails and big bows your eyes all aglow
I held your hand as we sang
While the congregation looked on in admiration
As we sang in the old village choir

The ring in their voices with eyes all aglow
Filled with devotion on fire
Oh how my heart's yearning that longing returning
To sing in the old village choir

Oh how my heart's yearning that longing returning
To sing in the old village choir

From

I think that version was done by The Browns.
