Complete recordings of Dyson’s organ music are as rare as hen’s teeth. Daniel Cook’s survey is only the second, Malcolm Pearce’s 2014 compendium on Larigot Recordings the other. St Mary Redcliffe’s sumptuously romantic IV/71 Harrison & Harrison (built in 1912, reconstructed in 2010) is an apposite choice: rich, robust and full voiced in the muscular Fantasia and Ground Bass, characterful and nuanced in the three-volume Variations on Old Psalm Tunes, altogether luminous in the gentle Prelude. The Voluntary in D and Postlude sit just as comfortably on the instrument with Cook an ardent advocate throughout.
