A rare performance of Spohr’s oratorio, hugely popular with audiences in the nineteenth century until the First World War. Spohr was a leading musician of his age – virtuoso violinist, a friend of Beethoven, the first conductor to use a baton, and the inventor of rehearsal letters. His unique blend of Romanticism and Handel-like choral writing is now being rediscovered by performers and audiences alike.
