Felix Mendelssohn's "Elijah" is the second most performed oratorio after Handel's "Messiah". It is presented in St Jude's by an augmented St Jude's Singers and The Highlands Sinfonia with soloists Christopher Harris (Elijah), Alison Robertson (Soprano), Melinda Richardson (Soprano), Michael Spence (Alto) and David Allen (Tenor). It is directed by Allan Beavis. This dramatic work chronicles the work of the Old Testament Prophet Elijah: his confrontation with King Ahab and the prophets of the god Baal following a three year drought; Queen Jezabel's attempt to have him killed; Elijah's vision of God in the desert; his return to prophetic ministry; and his being taken directly to heaven.
This work was first performed in Birmingham UK and was described as "a complete triumph". Audience members are invited to bring a score and join in the choruses. Admission by donation.
