Concluding the excellent series of the complete church music of Mendelssohn.
“This recording is designed to crown Bernius's series of Mendelssohn's choral works, and offers a fitting climax. …Christine Karg… comes into her own in the duet "I waited for the Lord". The great moment which follows is set to the words "Die Nacht ist vergangen" ("the night has departed") - a moment which should send a thrill, as it certainly does in this recording.” GRAMOPHONE
“The fresh young voices of the Kammerchor Stuttgart bring vitality to Mendelssohn’s hybrid symphony-cantata….from the opening trombone fanfares to the brisk final fugue it displays a dramatic range of colour and texture in this lively and well-paced performance.” CHURCH & ORGAN
