In 1992, the Naval Academy Chapel leased a Rodgers Organ from R.A. Daffer Church Organs while the Moller pipe organ was being renovated. Organist James Dale (1947-1995) made this recording on the Rodgers Organ in the Chapel.
In 1972, Oxon Hill Lutheran Church became the first church to install a combination Rodgers/Ruffatti combination organ. This recording features organist Harry Sterling from his LP “Heraldings”, cut in 1977.
This unreleased, live recording made by Virgil Fox on September 19, 1976 on the Royal V Rodgers Touring organ was given to us by the late Ted Alan Worth. He performs Bach’s Fugue a la Gigue before an audience of about 6,000 in San Francisco.
Richard Purvis (1913-1994)is heard playing a Rodgers that was installed at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, during their pipe organ renovation in 1969. He is playing his composition “Les Petites Cloches”.
