Mendelssohns unfinished 3rd oratorio in its first critical edition. The parts "Die Geburt Christi" and "Das Leiden Christi" are presented with full orchestration. In 1852, five years after Mendelsohn's death, two independently-performable fragments of an unfinished oratorio were published under the title "Christus". The second fragment, "The Suffering of Jesus", comes from the middle of the Passion story: the scene "Jesus before Pilot" is presented with rapid, dramatic alternation between the recitatives of the evangelist (tenor) and choruses of the people. A contemplative choral movement closes the fragment.
