George Dyson's Magnificat in D and Nunc Dimittis in D Performed by the King's College Choir

George Dyson is the father of Freeman Dyson, subject of the post immediately below this one — Freethinking Physicist. His compositions have been described as "skilful, sometimes deeply felt, but never forward-looking in idiom." Said fellow Anglican C. S. Lewis, "We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive."
