Sir George Dyson was one of the foremost British composers and educators in the first half of the 20th Century. In 1900 he gained a scholarship to the RCM. After a period in study with Stanford he was appointed to Marlborough College and then onto the Wellington  College before becoming Director of the RCM.  He was knighted in 1942 and retired in 1952. His organ works are little known . Daniel Cook , Sub-Organist of Westminster Abbey, continues his considerable survey of British organ works for Priory with this issue.

"Priory here continues its laudible and apparently never-ending mission to lead us along the byways of English organs and English organ music.  The Harrison and Harrison Organ at St.Mary, Redcliffe is the perfect vehicle for this music. The opening piece is the high spot of the CD and it is beautifully recorded too. Cook's sensitive, atmospheric readings do as much as the St.Mary's Redcliffe organ to show Dyson's work in the best light. Jonathan Clinch supplies excellent programme notes. Barnaby Page, Organists Review

"It is hard to think it could be better served than by Daniel Cook.....the organ sounds splendid here....Daniel Cook revels in the possibilities of the instrument and exploits it to the full so as to give colourful and often exciting performances. The organ has been recorded with great skill and understanding by Neil Collier and makes its presence felt at all dynamic levels." John Quinn, Music Web International
