Mendelssohn’s Elijah has been a great favourite with singers and audiences alike, ever since Mendelssohn himself conducted the first performance - in Birmingham Town Hall - 170 years ago. Its dramatic depiction of Elijah’s overthrow of the priests of Baal and his conversion of the people to the worship of the one true God clearly inspired Mendelssohn to create his great choral and orchestral masterpiece.
