Reviews

‘Hierusalem is a wonderful piece which I would bracket with Finzi’s Dies Natalis and Howells’s Hymnus Paradisi as one of the best examples of mystical ecstasy which certain British choral works achieve’ (Gramophone)

'The very beautiful, gently ecstatic Hierusalem … is such a wonderful score that … this recording should be on every shelf that cares about 20th-century British music' (Fanfare, USA)
Written in 1960, the Fantasia and Ground Bass for organ is a product of Dyson’s Indian Summer – a beautifully-made piece of happy invention, melodious and unportentous in character. Although Dyson’s career started in the organ-loft when he was a boy, only in the last decade of his life did he start to compose for the organ; in this he curiously resembles Parry.

from notes by Christopher Palmer 1985
