Picture of CD of music for organ by Samuel Wesley performed by Jennifer Bate on the historic organ of St. James's, Bermondsey
This well-filled CD comprises some of Wesley's most important and enjoyable organ works. Jennifer Bate chose especially the famous historic organ of St James's Bermondsey as the ideal instrument for her recording of his organ music. It was built in 1829 by James Bishop and at the time had the most complete Pedal organ in the country.

Samuel Wesley is considered to be one of the most important and individual voices in British music. His output was prodigious encompassing great vocal works, symphonies, concertos and many solo instrumental pieces.His expertise as an instrumentalist and singer was counterbalanced by erudition in classical studies.

Many musicinas dedicated work to Samuel Wesley and he in turn wrote for his musical friends and fellow composers William Drummer, William Linley, Thomas Adams, William Harding and others. His organ works mark a high point in English organ music and an evolution away from the baroque to the romantic. From 1770, composers transformed the English voluntary but no-one approached Wesley's poritively orchestral panache.

Arrangement with Variation of 'Rule Britannia'
