One of the supreme examples of music for soloists, chorus, and orchestra, Mendelssohn’s glorious oratorio Elijah tells the story of the Old Testament prophet charged with bringing Israel back into God’s fold. Stirring choruses, including "Thanks Be to God", and gorgeous arias abound in this uplifting masterpiece.
