Mendelssohn and the Organ

Wm. A. Little

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows that Mendelssohn's organ part for St. Paul was the first of five separate organ parts that he composed for his own larger choral works. The other four are Lobgesang (Op. 52, 1840), Psalm 2 (Op. 78.1, 1843), Psalm 98 (Op. 91, 1843), and Elijah (Op. 70, 1846). The scores for his other choral works, such as Psalm 42 (1839) or Psalm 95 (1839), contain only minimal directions for organ (e.g., “col organo” or “senza organo”).

Keywords:   Mendelssohn, organists, organ music, oratorios, choral works, St. Paul
