Description
Felix Mendelssohn championed the great choral works of J.S. Bach, re-introducing the long forgotten St. Matthew Passion. Paulus and Elijah are the two oratorios he is primarily remembered for. Indeed, Paulus ("St. Paul") is central to the revival of the German oratorio tradition in the early 19th century, ending a period of stagnation in the genre. In it, Mendelssohn evoked the great traditions of Bach and Handel while embracing modern developments in compositional technique. The libretto encompasses the martyrdom of St. Stephen, Paul's journey to Damascus, the early missionary journey with Barnabas, the miracle at Lystra, and the farewell to the people of Ephesus.

"The performance is lovely…. The solo and choral singers make the most of Mendelssohn's word-settings, which are very effective in bringing out the drama."—Fanfare
