Rodgers Organs Los Angeles

The Sound of Infinity - Listen Now

music-image

Sacred Heart Chapel, on the campus of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, features approximately four seconds of reverberation and is an ideal acoustic for an organ.  This Rodgers Infinity 361 installation features an eight-channel main audio system located behind the crucifix, and antiphonal and trumpet en chamade divisions at the rear of the nave.  This is an all-digital organ–the pipes visible on either side of the altar are from the previous Rodgers hybrid organ and are just for looks now.

These recordings were engineered by Ron Streicher using a pair of microphones positioned between the altar and the crucifix, and a pair of microphones in the middle of the nave to capture the room ambiance/reverberation.  The recordings were mixed live and capture the natural sound of the organ in Sacred Heart Chapel.

Concert Variations on "The Star Spangled Banner"

Composer/Arranger: Dudley Buck / Lee
Organist: Jung-A Lee

First published in 1886 for organ, this romantic period piece based on a tune of a popular British song written by John Stafford Smith provides an entertaining tour of the tonal variety available in the Infinity organ, including some of the non-organ voices. "The Star-Spangled Banner" was recognized for official use by the Navy in 1889, and by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916, and was made the national anthem by a congressional resolution on March 3, 1931, which was signed by President Herbert Hoover.
