Synopsis

Product Description
Elijah remains, after Handel's Messiah, probably the best-loved and most performed choral work, especially in Britain where it became an instant success. This is the first ever complete recording (albeit with some minor cuts), and in its drama, intensity and sheer vitality, as well as the quality of the singing, is still among the best. Made in 1930, this is the first CD re-issue.
