At Choral Evensong, All Saints Fulham Choir will sing Ascribe unto the Lord by English organist and composer Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810–1876).
Samuel Sebastian was the grandson of famed hymn writer and founding father of the Methodist Church Charles Wesley.
He was also the 4th child of organist and composer Samuel Wesley who gave his son the middle name Sebastian as a tribute to Bach.
He was appointed organist at Hereford Cathedral in 1832. This was the first of a series of cathedral appointments. He moved to Exeter Cathedral in 1835, and then onto Leeds Parish Church (from 1842), Winchester Cathedral (from 1849) and Gloucester Cathedral from 1865 until his death in 1876 from nephritis.
