The organist of Canterbury cathedral from 1961 to 1988, he was the first in Britain to play and record the works of Olivier Messiaen, and then encouraged other contemporary composers.

Allan always acknowledged his debt to Jackson's musicianship and, in particular, his masterful handling of the organ. As well as teaching at St Peter's school, York, Allan was chorus master of the Leeds Philharmonic Choir. This brought him into contact with the major oratorio repertoire. He helped bring to life some significant works and collaborated closely with Sir Malcolm Sargent. In 1954, he was appointed organist and master of the choristers at Manchester cathedral.
