BLESSED SACRAMENT CATHOLIC - Albany
In 2014, Carlson Organs designed and built a Rodgers hybrid organ for Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Albany, NY. This hybrid consisted of the church's existing pipe organ located in the chancel of the church, and interfaced with a Rodgers custom organ. One requirement of this project was to relocate the choir and organ console to the rear gallery. With no room to relocate the pipe organ in the gallery, the alternative was to install a towering organ cabinet underneath the Rose Window to house the Rodgers audio cabinets, while including a complete Antiphonal set of audio in the Chancel, and interface the pipe organ to the Rodgers console. Also included in this project was the installation of a 5" wind pressure Trompete-en-Chamade protruding from the rear case for heraldic effects. The end result has been a highly-versatile instrument, capable of supporting music in both ends of the building with ease.
The slide show below shows the construction and installation of the rear gallery cabinet and Trompete-en-Chamade.
