Meet the Owner
Owner Viscount Classical Organs
David is the owner of Viscount Classical Organs (UK) Ltd. He has loved and played church organs since he was 12 years old. His grandfather was an FRCO so the love of the instrument runs deep in the genes.
Since 1990 David has had home practice instruments: first an Allen and now of course a Viscount digital organ. He also has a 2 manual Hill pipe organ set-up in his converted barn which acts as a home recital venue. His organ tutelage level sits at Grade VII but time permitting, he’d like to one day progress to Grade VIII.
David runs Viscount Organs with a close attention to the detail that musicians appreciate, and a clear understanding of the benefits of digital technology and keeping to the traditional and emotional elements of organ playing.
