About this Recording

WESLEY, S.S.: Anthems

Samuel Sebastian Wesley was the pre-eminent organist-composer of the early Victorian era. During his career he worked tirelessly for over forty years to raise the standard of music offered in English cathedrals, and this collection of his most popular anthems, including the exquisite Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, reflects the culmination of his achievements in this field. Unashamedly Romantic yet original in style, Wesley’s music speaks with a powerful and wholly distinctive voice.
