In this quintessential work of Biblical storytelling, Mendelssohn takes the craft of Bach’s choral writing and fuses it to Romantic orchestral colors and harmonies. Come hear the exciting story of Elijah, sung in its original English, and performed by full orchestra, soloists and chorus; memorable portions include: “Lift Thine Eyes,” “O Rest in the Lord,” and “Thanks Be To God.” Presented by the Canterbury Choral Society, conducted by Jonathan De Vries
