Influenced by the large-scale biblical works of Felix Mendelssohn, Carl Amand Mangold's robust 1859 oratorio Abraham—appearing here in its first-ever recording—recounts key moments in the life of the patriarch, including his thwarted attempt to sacrifice his son, Isaac. The disc's liner notes include the lyrics and background information on Mangold, a specialist in vocal compositions.

"The choruses provide the most effective moments, many of them fugal, some chordal and hymnlike…. By the time we reach a description of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, the hailstones are raining down and the earth is trembling very satisfactorily. Nor does Abraham's near-sacrifice of Isaac go unmarked. Baritone Gilles Cachemaille is an agile, resonant Abraham, with contralto Mechthild Georg effective in brief appearances as Hagar, driven into the wilderness. Five angels support them well, and Darmstadt's vibrant, well-schooled forces, led by Wolfgang Seeliger, do honor to the memory of Mangold, their city's onetime choral director."—Opera News
