Description:
David N. Johnson (born 28 June 1922, San Antonio, Texas) (died 2 August 1987 in Tempe, Arizona) was an American organist, composer, educator, choral clinician, and lecturer.

He studied organ and composition at Curtis Institute of Music (1940–1942).

He was a lecturer at Syracuse University (1951). From 1960–1967, he was college organist of Boe Chapel and organ instructor at St Olaf College, Northfield MN. He was music department chair at St Olaf stolaf.edu 1965–1967. In 1967, he succeeded Arthur Poister as professor of music, university organist and director of music in Hendricks Chapel at Syracuse University. He later moved to Arizona in 1969, where he taught at Arizona State University, Tempe, and served at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Phoenix. He died in Tempe on August 2, 1987.

Johnson published well over three hundred compositions, most of them for church use, and was author of an Instruction Book for Beginning Organists (1964) and an Organ Teacher's Guide (1971).

The Tumpet Tune in A Major was published in 1974, and is my favorite of all of Johnson's fine trumpet pieces.

I know this isn't the "right" organ for this piece, but I liked the sound of it!

I do wonder if all the registration changes could be made as quickly with the "unrealistic" pistons... ;-)
