I've got them both! I haven't recorded or done anything extensive with either, but I have run through most of the sounds, including the extra sounds on the Sanctuary card.
The Classical card definitely beefs up the "real" instruments for the QS. I think a lot of the sounds will work great in context, but you might be disappointed if you're looking for perfect solo sounds. The samples changes are just too noticeable for a quiet violin solo to sound like the real thing, for instance. Still, there are enough new samples and solid programs to make this a worthwhile card.
The Sanctuary card is extremely cool. Of course, it depends on the kinds of things you're doing, but for me this card is loaded with useful sounds. I know it was built for the church market, mostly, but I'm into film composing and music with a mix of styles, so it's works. The organs are outstanding! There are also some different electric pianos and other chromatic programs (bells, chimes, etc.) that are hip. And, of course, there's the vocal stuff. Again, in context these sounds are awesome. Highly recommended.
Hope that helps. Good luck.
