Michael Wise: Sacred Choral Music

​Catalogue no: DCD 34041

Price: £13.00 (including postage and packaging)

This recording of music by Wise is the first devoted exclusively to his music (with the addition of some contemporary organ music). The well-known anthems and services such as Prepare ye the way of the Lord, The ways of Sion do mourn and the Evening Canticles in E flat, still regularly performed today, can thus be heard for the first time alongside a selection of the rest of his output.

1. Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord
2. Verse For Single Organ
3. How Are The Mighty Fallen
4. A Verse For The Organ
5. The Lord Is My Shepherd
6. (Verse) For The Organ
7. Te Deum (Serive In D Minor)
8. Jubilate Deo (Sevice In D Minor)
9. (Verse) In D Major
10. O Praise God In His Holiness
11. Blessed Is He That Considereth The Poor And Needy
12. Magnificat (Service In E Flat)
13. Nunc Dimittis (Service In E Flat)
14. The Ways Of Sion Do Mourn
15. Awake, Put On Thy Strength O Sion
16. (Verse) In A Minor
17. Have Pity Upon Me, O Ye Friends
18. (Double Voluntary) In D Minor
19. Open Me The Gates Of Righteousness

The performances are stylish, and even the soprano soloists sound like boy trebles.
