British Church Composer Series, Vol. 1: John Sanders

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
God bless John Sanders. Without him and the thousands of musicians like him, music would have been much the poorer. Indeed, without Sanders and those like him, life would be poorer. Born in 1933, Sanders spent most of his life as the organist and master of the choristers at Gloucester Cathedral, enriching the lives of all Anglicans in the west of Britain. Upon his retirement in 1997, Sanders was at last able to return to his love of composition and created a series of works both exalted and intimate, personal and transcendent, subjective and sublime. This disc featuring the Choir of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, was not, unfortunately, made under Sanders' ...

All Music Guide - James Leonard
God bless John Sanders. Without him and the thousands of musicians like him, music would have been much the poorer. Indeed, without Sanders and those like him, life would be poorer. Born in 1933, Sanders spent most of his life as the organist and master of the choristers at Gloucester Cathedral, enriching the lives of all Anglicans in the west of Britain. Upon his retirement in 1997, Sanders was at last able to return to his love of composition and created a series of works both exalted and intimate, personal and transcendent, subjective and sublime. This disc featuring the Choir of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, was not, unfortunately, made under Sanders' direction, but rather was led by Geoffrey Webber. This is unfortunate not because Webber isn't a fine conductor -- he is clearly a fine conductor with a thorough understanding of Sanders' music and idiom -- but because Sanders died unexpectedly after a short illness before the recording could be made. Thus his stirring "Festival Te Deum," his affecting "A Prayer of Cardinal Newman," his awesome "The Firmament," and all the other works on this disc were not led by Sanders but by Webber. Fortunately, Webber seems to love Sanders' music and his performances with the Gonville and Caius College Choir are tremendously moving. While Sanders' music is by no means avant-garde -- it is thoroughly tonal and proud of it -- it is still recognizably the music of its time and anyone who enjoys the music of John Rutter will find no difficulties here. For a taste of Sanders at his best, try the concluding a cappella "A Prayer." Written just before his death, Sanders' music is at once restful, hopeful, and deeply blessed. Priory's sound is lush and deep.
