  • Charles Wesley junior (Bristol, 11 de desembre de 1757 - Londres, 23 de maig de 1834) fou un organista i compositor anglès. Era fill de Sarah i Charles Wesley (el gran escriptor d'himnes i un dels fundadors del Metodisme) i del germà de Samuel Wesley, també organista i compositor. Se li sol anomenar "Charles Wesley junior" per evitar confusions amb el seu pare més famós. Mai es va casar, vivint la major part de la seva vida amb la seva mare i la seva germana. Tot i que el jove germà Charles Wesley és molt menys conegut que el seu germà Samuel Wesley, era com Samuel considerat un prodigi musical a la infància i ell tocava l'orgue abans dels tres anys. Es va convertir en un músic professional en l'edat adulta i Matthews (1971) cita la Revista Europea de 1784 segons que "la seva actuació en l'orgue ha donat una delícia suprema". Tot i això, no va gaudir de l'actuació pública, i va treballar sobretot com a organista privat, al mateix temps al príncep regent; va estar connectat amb la família reial durant bona part de la seva vida, després d'haver tocat per primera vegada a la casa de la reina a l'edat de 18 anys. Es mantenen encara un grapat de composicions seves i una sonata de teclat en F menor ha estat descobert recentment i va rebre la seva primera actuació l'1 de febrer de 2007 a la Perkins School of Theology de la Southern Methodist University, com a part de la celebració metodista d'un any que és el 300 aniversari del naixement de Charles Wesley i el 250 aniversari de Charles.

He is usually referred to as "Charles Wesley junior" to avoid confusion with his more famous father. He never married, living for most of his life with his mother and sister. Although Charles Wesley junior is much less well known than his brother Samuel Wesley, he was like Samuel regarded as a musical prodigy in childhood, and he was playing the organ before the age of three. He became a professional musician in adulthood, and Matthews (1971) quotes the European Magazine of 1784 as reporting that "his performance on the organ has given supreme delight". However he did not enjoy public performance, and worked mainly as a private organist, at one time to the Prince Regent; he was connected with the royal family through much of his life, having first played at the Queen's House at the age of 18. A handful of his compositions are still played, and a keyboard sonata in F minor was recently discovered and received its first performance on 1 February 2007 at the Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University, as part of Methodist celebration of a year that is both the 300th anniversary of Charles Wesley's birth and the 250th anniversary of Charles Wesley junior's.
