Product Description

Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel wrote the Cholera Cantata in 1831, to mark the end of the epidemic that had devastated Berlin. The original, 13- part work was written for choir and chamber orchestra. The lyrics, derived from Biblical texts, depict both the despair and mourning felt during the height of the epidemic, and also celebratory praise at its cessation. After the initial performance in 1832, the piece remained unpublished (and likely unperformed) until it was rediscovered in the Mendelssohn Archives at the Berlin State Library 150 years later. This arrangement is of the introduction only.
