Lincoln Choral Society, joined by Hull Choral Union, perform Felix Mendelssohn's masterpiece in Lincoln Cathedral, one of the greatest choral works of the 19th Century.

The choirs will be accompanied by the Lincolnshire Chamber Orchestra and conducted by Mark Wilde, Musical Director of Lincoln Choral Society.

The oratorio, which depicts events in the life of the Biblical prophet Elijah, taken from the books 1 Kings and 2 Kings of the Old Testament., was first performed on 26th August 1846 at Birmingham Town Hall in its English version, conducted by the composer. It was immediately acclaimed as a classic of the genre and went on to be performed in front of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert themselves.

Mendelssohn’s music is full of wonderful melodies and passion. He was inspired by the great oratorios of Handel and Bach which gives his music a strong narrative thrust that sweeps us along in the drama of the work.
