From its first performance in 1846, Elijah was hailed as the greatest oratorio since Handel's Messiah. Mendelssohn's choral masterpiece recounts the story of Biblical prophet Elijah with imposing grandeur through inspired orchestration, beautiful arias, dramatic recitatives, and uplifting choruses.
