Mendelssohn St Paul


A rare chance to hear Mendelssohn’s first oratorio rather than the more frequently performed Elijah. Influenced by Bach’s Passions (of which Mendelssohn was an early champion), the work is full of dramatic writing. It contains some glorious melodies, including ‘How Lovely are the Messengers’ and one of the most beautiful choruses Mendelssohn ever wrote: ‘Happy and Blest are They Who Have Endured’.
