The San Fernando Mission interior is a replica of the 1806 church building, destroyed in the 1971 earthquake

San Fernando Rey de Espana Mission (est. 1797)–visitors to the expansive grounds of this California mission in the Northeast corner of the San Fernando Valley will enjoy the Westminster clock chimes on the quarter hour, followed by the Angelus at 6 pm.  The current church is an exact replica of the 1806 church destroyed in the 1971 earthquake.  The original mission bells survived the earthquake and are now installed at the Cathedral of our Lady of the Angeles in Los Angeles.  The mission features a museum and a beautiful memorial garden where Bob & Dolores Hope and several family members are buried.

The twin bell towers at St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Los Angeles

St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Los Angeles–the neighborhood surrounding St. Sophia’s has heard a Schulmerich carillon since the cathedral was built in 1952.  The new Schulmerich g5 digital carillon continues the tradition with state-of-the-art technology and the sound of cast bronze bells emanating from the cathedral’s twin towers.  The carillon is played from new Rodgers Infinity three-manual organ during Sunday services, enabled by a MIDI interface with the organ console.

Roland Classic Organ for Monastery of the Angels

Sometimes a small organ is just the right answer.  This is the case for the Dominican nuns at Monastery of the Angels in Hollywood, CA.  Typical of monastic life, the nuns assemble in the chapel seven times each day to celebrate the Liturgy of the Hours, which involves chants and hymn singing.

The Roland C-230 one-manual classic organ is perfectly suited for this type of liturgical music in the nuns’ private chapel.  Guests attending services in the public chapel, which is separated by a screen, can participate and hear the nuns chanting.
