Cathedral choir put on a "very special" performance

This performance of Mendelssohn's great oratorio Elijah should definitely go into the choir's top ten performances list... Mr. Scriven's enthusiastic conducting brought out its drama and excitement, making us realise just why it has been acclaimed as arguably the greatest English oratorio (apart from the Messiah, of course) ever since its first performance in 1846.
