Item Number: HP.8342

This "Accessible Edition" of Mendelssohn's classic oratorio, Elijah, has been modestly adapted by Hal Hopson for the purpose of making this esteemed work less of a monumental challenge and vastly more approachable for a wide range of choral groups. Several considerations were made in the editing and adapting of the score starting with every effort to maintain the musical integrity of the original. Modifications include: reducing the overall length of the work while maintaining the dramatic flow, lower keys for solos and choruses, updates to the text, making the organ accompaniment more "user friendly" with designated manual and pedal parts, providing an optional timpani part derived from Mendelssohn's original orchestration, and providing scriptural references for the entire text.
