Notes & Reviews:

This disc is a companion to Jennifer Bate's critically acclaimed 'Samuel Wesley Organ Music'. Both CDs were recorded using first editions or manuscript copies of the music. Charles Wesley, Senior, was considered the greatest hymn writer in the English language. For this album, renowned organist Jennifer Bate also performs the music of William Russell, Thomas Attwood, and Sir Frederick Ouseley. All three achieved fame in their respective fields. This CD not only contains a substantial collection of organ music, but serves as a valuable history lesson as well.
