Dyson, shattered by his service in the trenches, returned to the Royal College of Music a man shaken, transformed. Confidence returned slowly. St Paul's Voyage sets sections of Chapter 27 of Acts: the journey from Rome to shipwreck on Malta. It is worth noting that the very same Neil Mackie who made this recording in the 1980s is also the tenor in the St Paul work the sessions for which took place in 2002. Agincourt, a very late work, has at the start and at . 0, a Waltonian ebullience like the cracking Te Deum by the Oldham composer. Other influences include Vaughan Williams from Dona Nobis Pacem.
Paul’s Voyage to Melita has the singular advantage of depicting a storm at sea, which the composer does with evident relish despite the somewhat austere orchestral palette. The reason for this becomes clear at the end: when St. Paul and his passengers make it safely to dry land, bass drum and chimes create an effect as simple as it is overwhelming. Tenor Neil Mackie’s voice is pretty much shot in St. Paul’s Voyage; it’s rather better in the earlier recording of Nocturne. The Bournemouth Symphony Chorus is not one of England’s best: it sounds under-rehearsed in places (some shaky ensemble), and the women suffer occasional pitch problems–but these aren’t serious liabilities. Happily, Vernon Handley and the Bournemouth Symphony give performances full of conviction and impact. There’s no trace of Victorian (or Edwardian) fustiness, and the recorded sound is warm, well-balanced, and rich.
