Notes & Reviews:
"While Mendelssohn's writing only sporadically rises to the highest level of inspiration, the oratorio is never less than lovely, and it is occasionally genuinely powerful and moving. The performance by Kammerchor Stuttgart and Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, led by Frieder Bernius, is polished, and makes a strong case for the work, as do the vocal soloists. Maria Cristina Kiehr sings both the soprano and mezzo-soprano solos with pure and focused, if not particularly full tone. Tenor Werner Gura and bass Michael Volle bring strong voices and dramatic intensity to the music." -All Music Guide
