Auckland organist John Wells is presenting a week-long series of concerts on the Avery organ at Ponsonby Baptist Church.

The organ was built in 1779 by English organ builder John Avery, and is one of Australasia's finest and most historic organs.

John Wells talks with RNZ Concert's David Morriss about this remarkable instrument.
