Rudolph A. Lucente has been associated with Allen Organs for over twenty years, and recently is known as the designer of the
RL-66 and RL-90 organs, comprehensive three-manual and four-manual instruments that have met with acclaim from organists nationwide. He is an assistant organist at the
Wanamaker Grand Court Organ in Philadelphia, and appears regularly at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA, The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia,
and Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. As a recitalist, Rudy is known for his "family friendly" presentations and dedication programs. As a clinician,
his fifty-plus years as a church musician have enabled him to assist workshop attendees in most aspects of their important ministry.
Rudy studied organ with Dr. Keith Chapman and also worked with the American/Armenian composer Richard Yardumian. Since their untimely deaths,
Rudy has devoted much of his musical activities to the preservation and performance of their works.
Mr. Lucente appears frequently as a recitalist and church music clinician, and is a member of the Philadelphia Organ Quartet, an ensemble that
performs music arranged for four organs.
The 66-Stop Rudy Lucente RL-66 Designer church organ is the culmination of his many years of experience in the Catholic music tradition.
Employing Allen's advanced technology, the organ is designed with the versatility for both worship and concert use. The stop list includes principal choruses on all
divisions and independent Festival Trumpet. The Allen RL-66 offers the flexibility of six specifications to compliment any style of music.
"The RL-90 meets the need for a larger instrument, allowing Allen to offer the right choice to customers seeking the particular
capabilities of the RL organs. I incorporated many of the specification attributes from the fine pipe organs that I am privileged to play, and the samples in the RL-90 have
been meticulously selected to provide a cohesive ensemble, rich texture, and extraordinary solo voices. It is a privilege to have been asked to assist in this design, and
I am confident that the RL-90 will meet with the same success as has the RL-66."
"The process of creating these organs was an exciting and rewarding experience. The combination of Allen's superior technology and
their flexibility has resulted in two truly comprehensive instruments." - Rudy Lucente
