John S. Dixon (b. 1957) — Darwall’s Fantasia (2014) for organ

in four sections: Praeludium, Aria, Intermezzo, Toccata

“Darwall's Fantasia” (2014) was composed for Carson Cooman. Over the course of the work, John Darwall’s 1770 hymn tune DARWALL'S 148 (most often sung with the text “Rejoice, the Lord Is King”) is revealed, sometimes in obvious ways and other times very subtly.

Born in London, England, John S. Dixon (b. 1957) was classically trained in piano and organ. During his school years he was active in music in the Anglican church, and was a founding member of The Southend Boys Choir, one of Britain’s foremost youth choirs. He earned degrees from The Queen’s College, Oxford University, and Harvard Business School. His composing has flourished since moving to America in 1988, largely through his involvement in the music ministry at Providence Presbyterian Church in Virginia Beach, where he is currently organist and composer-in-residence. He has written hundreds of pieces for church and secular use.
