Elijah During Holy Week

We spent the evening of Good Friday last night with friends at the Boston Symphony Orchestra's performance of Mendelssohn's great oratorio Elijah. I found it rather fitting to hear the Old Testament words about the prophet while contemplating the redemptive work of Christ.

Elijah is among my favorite musical works, and hearing it performed by such a fantastic orchestra, good chorus, and great soloists made for a sublime evening.

And then shall your light break forth as the light of morning breaketh: and your health shall speedily spring forth then: and the glory of the Lord ever shall reward you.
Lord, our Creator. how excellent Thy Name is in all the nations! Thou fillest heaven with Thy glory. Amen.
