This was the first of our two 70th Anniversary Concerts this year.

Mendelssohn’s Oratorio Elijah (German: Elias), Op. 70, MWV A 25.

Premiered in 1846 at the Birmingham Festival, it depicts events in the life of the Biblical prophet Elijah, taken from the books 1 Kings and 2 Kings of the Old Testament. The work is scored for four vocal soloists (bass-baritone, tenor, alto and soprano), a symphony orchestra including brass and organ and a four-part chorus.

The second of our two 70th Anniversary Concerts this year will feature the work performed in 1947, Handel’s Messiah. Further details can be found here.
