For He Shall Give His Angels [MENDELSSOHN] (from the oratorio ELIJAH), for SATB voices and Soprano Solo with Organ Accompaniment
Felix Mendelssohn was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor of the early Romantic period. His oratoio ELIJAH (Op. 70, MWV A 25) premiered in 1846 at the Birmingham Festival. The piece was composed in the spirit of his Baroque predecessors Bach and Handel, whose music he loved; however, in its lyricism and use of orchestral and choral color the style clearly reflects Mendelssohn’s own genius as an early Romantic composer. The oratorio depicts events in the life of the Biblical prophet Elijah, taken from the books 1 Kings and 2 Kings of the Old Testament. "For He Shall Give His Angels," set with text from Psalm 91, originally was scored for Double Quartet (or Double Chorus) and full orchestra; this slightly abbreviated arrangement features a lowered key, organ accompaniment and re-voicing to accommodate a smaller choir with limited range.
