    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.
