Characterized by gripping drama and at the same time by an intimacy of trust in God, something which was no longer a matter of course even in Mendelssohn’s lifetime, this oratorio offers a wealth of musical means of expression, ranging from total despair to tremendous joy and whipped-up agitation in the contest about the “true” God. Singers have a range of rewarding challenges in this work.
