We have recorded this conversation after David's recital at Vilnius University St. John's church so he talks about his experience with playing the largest pipe organ in Lithuania, handling many different organs during his career, and most importantly, about English organ music of various historical periods because when he travels abroad, he becomes an ambassador of English organ culture.
