Quick Overview

Lauda Sion
A Cantata for Soprano Solo, Chorus and Organ

This is a real find! A wonderful cantata which should have been wildly popular for years.

Colin Hand has created this excellent performing edition, adding a real organ part from Mendelssohn's orchestration. There are eight movements, each of modest length, and the vocal writing is gracious and approachable.

Lauda Sion is vintage Mendelssohn - big tunes and luscious harmonies - and is scored for four soloists, chorus and organ.

Lauda, Sion, salvatorem
Laudis thema specialis
Sit laus plena
In hac mensa novi Regis
Docti sacris institutis
Caro cibus, sanguis potus
Sumit unus, sumunt mille
Bone pastor, panis vere
