Nineteenth century oratorio composition reached its zenith with Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy's Elijah. Just as Handel's Messiah, written a century earlier, had made its triumphant - global - way, the world of music was similarly quick to recognise the outstanding musical mastery of Elijah, granting it a place of honour among comparable works of its time. But Elijah was not performed and celebrated with such unbroken continuity to this day as has been the case with Messiah. Antisemitic sentiments have stood in its way, as first emerged with Richard Wagner (in his essay "Das Judentum in der Musik" ("Judaism in Music") published anonymously in 1850), which culminated in the legally enforced prohibition of performance of Mendelssohn's music and, astonishingly, even continued to have an effect for several decades to come. Mendelssohn's music conveys both the dramatic and the cruel sides of Elijah and his later humility and trepidation with unmatched mastery. It is sometimes thought that in his characterisation of Elijah, the composer integrated autobiographical traits. Mendelssohn's own friends already interpreted the aria of resignation "Es ist genug" as being the composer's expression of his failing will to live, as came through in some passages of letters from the final years of his life.
