‘There are many reasons why I am here. I work in the British Library and to hear “Rustavi” choir performing in my work place…it’s like my cathedral has been consecrated. You’ve transformed the building. I work here for 18 years and its now a new building. I met Anzor Erkomaishvili in 2000 when I was researching a pre-soviet gramophone recordings… it’s such an honour’.
