The choir and soloists of Lutheran Church of The Master presented Felix Mendelssohn’s oratorio “Elijah” on Sunday, June 7, 2015 as part of the morning worship service. Soloists included Baritone Ryan Thorn as Elijah and sopranos Tina Appel, Katie Bruton & Aubrey Scarr, Mezzo Soprano Alexis Wesley, Tenors Daniel Cheng & Greg Sliskovich and Baritone Zac Biggs.
Mendelssohn set the biblical story of Elijah to music in 1846. The 9th century prophet Elijah was one of the most dramatic figures in the Old Testament. He is remembered for defending the worship of Yahweh over the Canaanite idol Baal, for being taken up to heaven in a whirlwind and for convincing God to perform miracles such as raising the dead and bringing down fire from sky.
