This oratorio is the third of three church works composed in rapid succession on 1831; its scoring is more abundant than that of the cantatas composed prior to it: there are five- to eight-part choruses and the orchestra is expanded to include three trombones. Once again Fanny Hensel-Mendelssohn looks back in musical history, this time to the pre-Baroque era, and adds a new dimension to her own compositional language by doing so. At times modal harmonies create an ,,archaic atmosphere for the biblical texts. Performance material available on hire.
