Kevin Mayhew Sacred Song Series present this beautiful edition of O For The Wings Of A Dove/ O Rest In The Lord by Felix Mendelssohn.
Felix Mendelssohn was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor of the early Romantic period. He is now among the most popular composers of the Romantic era. O Rest In The Lord is taken from his popular oratorio ‘Elijah’, which has been frequently performed, particularly in English-speaking countries, ever since its premiere. Mendelssohn also wrote many smaller-scale sacred works for unaccompanied choir and for choir with Organ. Amongst the most famous is ‘Hear My Prayer’, whose second half contains O for the Wings of a Dove, which has became extremely popular as a separate item.
