New Organ Installed at Shrine of the Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church


In June 2018, Robert Tall & Associates, Inc., area representatives for Rodgers Organs, supplied a 3-manual Trillium organ for the installation of the incoming Bishop, George Leo Thomas. Father Manuel Quintero, Rector in consultation with his staff decided the instrument should remain there permanently and that windblown pipes would be added in the Fall. Six pipe ranks were installed in early December, which are both visually and tonally attractive .

The 3-manual Trillium digital organ is built by Rodgers of Hillsboro, Oregon. The sounds have been recorded from famous pipe organs around the world and is the equivalent of 125 pipe ranks. Together with 6 windblown pipe ranks, Montre16’ (TC), Principal8’, Gemshorn 8’, Koppelflöte 8’, Octave 4’, Flute 4’, this hybrid instrument has a specification of 131 organ voices and over 200 non-organ samples both internally and externally through the MIDI system sound module, Rodgers MX200. With these advanced capabilities, Robert Tall calls it, “The Modern Organ.”

Design, installation and tonal finishing were accomplished by Robert Tall and associates, Robert Knight, Knight Pipe Organ Company, San Diego and Christian Lentz, Organ Technical Services, Las Vegas.
