Mendelssohn’s much-loved masterpiece Elijah, one of the greatest oratorios in choral repertoire.

through various Biblical episodes which feature terrible drought and famine, miraculous rain, mortal resurrection, a contest between gods, a fiery chariot and horses, and ultimately ascension to heaven.

Joining the choir will be professional soloists;
Elinor Rolfe Johnson (soprano), Siân Cameron (mezzo-soprano),
Huw Ynyr (tenor), and Owain Browne (bass)
with the Colchester Symphony Orchestra, all conducted by Christopher Phelps.
