The Organ Music for Prelude and offertory:

The oratorio "Elijah" depicts the events in the life of  the prophet, Elijah. (from the 1st & 2nd Kings) This piece was written in the spirit of Mendelssohn's Baroque predecessors, Bach and Handel, adding into his own early romantic composing style.   During the Prelude and Offertory, three transcription settings from Mendelssohn's "Elijah" will be introduced; "Then Shall the Righteous Shine Forth", "Lift Thine Eyes", and "If with All Your Hearts".
