Lead me, Lord
Wesley, Mendelssohn and their contemporaries
The Choir of York Minster directed by Robert Sharpe
John Scott Whiteley Organ
"The Choir of the Minster under director of music Robert Sharpe is in exceptional form throughout, with fine contributions from the trebles (both individually and as a section). A handsome introdution to Wesley and his world." Choir & Organ March/April 2011
Released in 2010 marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Samuel Sebastian Wesley.
A beautiful collection of nineteenth-century anthems placing Wesley in context with some of his English contemporaries, and Mendelssohn – the German composer much-loved by English audiences in the mid-nineteenth century.
In addition to glorious and memorable melody, a feature of many of the works on this disc
is the extensive use of the boy treble voice in radiant and expressive solos.
