Mendelssohn: Choral Music

Corydon Singers, Matthew Best (conductor)


Whereas most of the music contained on this disc dates from the years immediately preceding Mendelssohn’s untimely death, Verleih’ uns Frieden was composed, along with the Opus 23 Sacred Choruses, during the period that followed the composer’s first flush of public success with such undisputed masterpieces as the String Octet and the Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
