A true manifestation of worship or sentimental kitsch? An oratorio or nearly an opera? Inspired by Bach and Handel, Mendelssohn composed a major vocal and instrumental opus for the Birmingham Festival, and this became the crowning glory of his creative life. False prophets are destroyed and Elijah rises to the sky in a fiery chariot. The honour of the Lord is expressed in music by the achievements of a person.
