Description

for SATB and organ Wesley set this prayer from the Litany several times and this edition is based on the final one published in 1870. The simple chordal texture of the opening blossoms into a richly contrapuntal Amen. The 'chains of our sins' are portrayed with characteristic chromaticism.show more

Famous as an organist in his day, he composed almost exclusively for the church.show more
