St. James by the Sea Episcopal church in La Jolla, CA has engaged Parsons to build a new four-manual and pedal, 65 voice, 79 rank pipe organ. The instrument is a collaboration with Rosales Organbuilders of Los Angeles, CA. The new organ incorporates electric slider, electro-pneumatic and electric actions on wind pressures ranging from 3.5” to 17.5” water column. It is located in chambers created for the previous organ, two on each side of the chancel. New casework of quartered white oak is designed to be cantilevered in front of the four, enlarged, tone openings. A matching case is installed in the rear of the nave to house the Antiphonal division. 109 tin façade pipes are incorporated into the five new cases. The new English-style drawknob console is custom designed to control the 105 drawknobs spread over six divisions including two full length 32’Pedal stops and sixteen ranks of reeds. Director of Music, Alex Benestelli and consultant, Thomas Sheehan have contributed extensively to the process.
