However, with due respect to other reviewers, you simply cannot understand much of this recording without a libretto. That is easily remedied. Set the search for Canadian Librairies, Medelssohn Elijah. This version includes every word on the recording, is easily followed, and can be quickly indexed to the cues provided in the EMI booklet. After ten or fifteen minutes work, you have a lovely alternative to A buying an expensive set with a libretto, or B doing without.
For those wondering about an English version of a German composer's work, Mendelssohn was completely fluent in English. He conducted the actual premier of Elijah in English. You have the composer's imprimatur for the English version. As a warning: I have found that searching for a libretto or lyrics for classical pieces is very dangerous.
I have found some really nasty infestations out there. Do be careful. I strongly suggest use of something like Mc Afee's SiteAdvisor or its equivalent. With Mc Afee, never ever click on even a grey unverified site link. Use only green links. Best wishes. This recording is in every way wonderful. Starting with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.
He IS Elijah to me. His singing is perfection. He has amazing phrasing and his diction makes it possible to understand the lovely, inspired libretto to this heavenly music. There are so many pieces that are ephemeral, but a couple of my favorites are: 14, Lord God of Abraham and 37, For the Mountains shall Depart.
Dieskau does a great job of what I think of as compassionate, heartfelt singing. His interpretation sounds like the voice of God himself.
It has a quality of kindness 20. Thanks Be To God! - Mendelssohn* - Gwyneth Jones / Janet Baker / Nicolai Gedda / Dietrich Fische yet he sounds just as convincing reprimanding the people of Baal.
He is the true highlight of this recording. That said, the rest of the cast is wonderful as well. Gwyneth Jones has a lovely, silvery voice that has a clarion bell-like tone that rings over the large orchestra with ease.
She has occasional "misfire" but is a consistent performer. Dame Janet Baker and Nicolai Gedda both perform at a consistently lovely level. The orchestra and chorus are both wonderful. All said, for me the main reason to get this recording is Dieskau's Elijah- after all, he's the main character. But don't forget the lovely music. This story is exciting and passionate and sacred all at the same time.
For Know Where To Run - Orbital - The Middle Of Nowhere, it's the best oratorio that has a moving story and great music too. I sang the Elijah in college more than five decades ago and can still sing along all the choruses from memory. During the time since I have listened to every major recorded release. Since then I lost my vinyl set in a fire and replaced it with the CD release shown here.
I still think this recording is the most musically satisfying--except for the lead part of Elijah.
