Notes & Reviews:

The Choir of St John's College, Cambridge has selected some of the best-known choral works of Samuel Sebastian Wesley for inclusion on this disc, interspersing them with one of his organ works as well as a psalm chant by his father, Samuel Wesley.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
We are further treated to a Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis setting of particular beauty and originality, further demonstrating the almost theatrical structural variety heard in his multipart anthems. Change of pace comes with a choice piece for solo organ, as well as two fetching Psalm-settings in modified Anglican chant form by his father, Samuel. Any aficionado of Anglican church music owes it to himself to explore this. The St John's College Choir performs with admirable facility and sincere sacred sentiment. Chandos sees to exceptional sound quality as well as a complete and useful booklet.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2013
An attractive programme, sung with expertise and devotion.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2013
One of the best [canticle-settings] is Wesley in E...Nethsinga directs splendidly, the performance as broad and grand as one could wish...this is a disc to uplift the spirits.
