Mendelssohn's "Lift Thine Eyes" from his oratorio "Elijah" has been skillfully arranged for three-part treble voices by Becki Slagle Mayo. This piece is ideal for advanced treble choirs who wish to sing a timeless anthem of a musical master. The text was originally written in German, but was translated to English for the first performance of Elijah in the nineteenth century. The German text has been included in this arrangement for performance versatility and teaching opportunities.
