Categories: English Classical Era Classical Composers.
Samuel Wesley, the younger son of the Rev Charles Wesley, was a gifted musician, and in later life was sometime called "the English Mozart". When only three years old he could play and extemporize on the organ, and by the time he was eight years old he knew all Handel's overtures by heart, and had composed an Oratorio. One of his seven children was named Samuel Sebastian (after the composer Bach), and became a well-known organist and composer.
