  Iain, you can indeed get a 90 degree phase advance at 10 Hz with
a flat frequency response from DC to ultrasound, using a single
opamp and a few parts.  This circuit gives unity gain, non-nverting
at the higher frequencies, with phase advance gradually increasing
as frequency decreases, reaching 180 degrees (inverting) at DC.
You can set the circuit to get 90 degrees advance wherever you

  R2 = R3; their values are not critical, maybe around 10 to 100K,
but for precise results they should be matched.  You get 90 degrees
of shift when X(c) = R1.  In a simple RC circuit, this would
produce 45 degrees of advance, but in this active circuit it
produces 90 degrees of advance from input to output.
  The R1 value is also not critical, although you may want to use a
value around 1/2 that of R2 and R3 to balance out offset current.
Then select C according to the value of R1.
  R1(in K ohms) * C (in uF) = 15.9 for 90 a degree circuit shift at
at 10 Hz.  So if R1 = 10K, then C = 1.59 uF; and if R1 = 47K, then
C = .338 uF, etc.
  You can make R1 variable to set the phase shift to exactly 90
degrees at 10 Hz.
