George Dyson: Variations On Old Psalm-tunes for Organ Book 3

Books | Organ

Publisher: Novello
Composer: George Dyson
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
In the Variations on Old Psalm-Tunes for Organ, Dyson fully explores the composer’s chosen sources: ‘Hard, the glad sound’ from Ravencroft’s Psalter (1621), Orlando Gibbons’s Song 24 ‘O word Immortal’ and Song 5 ‘O Prince of Peace,’ and ‘I was glad’ from the Scottish Psalter (1615). These works are popular for service voluntaries.Twentieth century composer and educator George Dyson was a writer of ambitious and critically well-received works that, due to their unfashionably accessible, late Romantic style, were allowed to languish and are now in the process of reassessment and renewed performance. However, Dyson’s works for unison Voice and church music – in particular his two settings of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis – have remained active in the Anglican repertoire.
