Chastised for his 'excesses in life and conversation', Michael Wise was hit about the head and 'kill'd downright' by the night watchman in Salisbury Cathedral, robbing history of one of the period's most prolific and respected composers and St Paul's Cathedral of its forthcoming Master of the Choristers.

This recording, the first dedicated to Wise's music, is testament to the more respectable music making that is Wise's legacy.

The Caius singers under Geoffrey Webber serve the music with an ideally informed and energetic rigour. This is their second volume of music from the Restoration.

…invigorating and highly persuasive.’ - Gramophone, October 2007
