Notes & Reviews:

Mendelssohn sub-titled his Symphony No. 2 "Hymn of Praise". With its conscious similarity to Beethoven's "Choral" Symphony, through its extended choral finale and its powerful ethical message, it was a very popular work in the nineteenth century. It contains beautiful writing for both orchestra and voice, but curiously is not as well known as the composers later symphonies. This excellent Naxos release will certainly do much to bring the work to a wider audience. Highly recommended.
