Notes & Reviews:

Peter Dickinson weaves together musical styles popular and classical, past and present, using a technique of 'style modulation'. In his Mass of the Apocalypse the Book of Revelations' visions of a new heaven and earth interact with the liturgical text. The music of Sidney Bechet and Bix Beiderbecke played at Philip Larkin's memorial service suggested the means for him to set the words of the great British poet, himself a jazz critic. His Five Forgeries spoof the styles of famous composers, while the other works showcase different aspects of his many-sided talent. Jennifer Bate's recording of Dickinson's complete solo organ works is available on Naxos 8.572169.
