Notes & Reviews:

"SS Wesley has been well served in recent times by the choirs of Worcester Cathedral and New College, Oxford, both of which have recorded programmes devoted to his works. Since these recitals have been deleted, it seems that interested listeners have had to collect him piecemeal. This CD by the Choir of Clare College arrives therefore at a needy time, though perhaps there are readers who think that that may be overstating the case. The writer of the booklet-notes, Nicholas Temperley, places Wesley as "a towering figure in the history of English cathedral music" -Gramophone
