Rare issue of one of Mendelssohn’s finest

“St Paul-The Tatton Singers” MHP 1809

The work on the recording of the Tatton Singers singing the Mendelssohn oratorio St Paul has been completed and the double CD of the work will be available at the next choir concert, the Annual Christmas Concert, which is being held on Saturday 12th of December.

During Mendelssohn’s lifetime, St Paul was a popular and frequently performed work. However, compared with such oratorios as Messiah, the Bach Christmas Oratorio and St Matthew Passion or even Mendelssohn’s own Elijah it has failed to maintain its place in the choral repertory and is now rarely performed in its entirety.[

It is believed that this is the first recording of the entire work sung in English and further information about the recording, the choir and their concert schedule please visit their website at The Tatton Singers.
