Mendelssohn's Elijah - A Fiery Musical Feast!

Following their spectacular 2014 performance of Verdi’s Requiem, Lewisham Choral Society and The Derbyshire Singers make a welcome return to the Fairfield Halls to perform Mendelssohn’s magnificent Elijah.

Building on the legacy of Bach and Handel oratorios and using a rather sparse Biblical source,

Mendelssohn added a large helping of early Romantic drama and colour: a musical depiction of rains falling on the parched earth, a fierce contest between Jehovah and Baal, a sacrifice consumed by fire and the prophet’s ascension to Heaven in a blazing chariot.

Fiery and dramatic, yet richly lyrical – a feast indeed!
