  1. Elijah Op 70 - Felix Mendelssohn

Elijah was composed for the Birmingham Festival of 1846, just a year before Mendelssohn’s early death. It is a work of tremendous dramatic scope, chronicling episodes in the life of the Old Testament prophet Elijah – including the contest of the gods, the miracle of raising the dead, the bringing of rain to a parched Israel and his ascension on a fiery chariot into heaven.

Mendelssohn was much influenced by the oratorios of Handel and the great choral works of JS Bach. In combining these elements with 19th century romanticism and drama, he created in Elijah a choral masterpiece that has enduring appeal to singers and audiences alike.
