One of the masterpieces of choral music, Mendelssohn’s Elijah will be performed at the Cathedral on 22nd April 2017. Premièred just 30 miles away in Birmingham in 1846, this richly rewarding work has become a classic for both choir and audience. Written as a homage to the Baroque masters he felt were being unjustly forgotten, Mendelssohn’s supremely successful oratorio has itself become one of the ‘greats’.
