Programme Note
Peter Dickinson Paraphrase 1 (1967)
This work is based on the composer's three-part motet John written in 1963 to a poem of Thomas Blackburn. The ten sections (the last a repeat of the first) are variations on themes and rhythms of the choral piece. These are clearly stated in the organ work - the first theme appears in the pedal part of Variation 1 and the second is heard in the 2 minute solo in Variation 4.

Paraphrase I was written to be played on a chamber organ and is intended for instruments of classical design. The first performance was given by the composer at the Pershore Organ Week, 8 October 1967, on a chamber organ built by Grant, Degens and Bradbeer.
