T

he night has passed, but the day has come. So let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the weapons of light": in Felix Mendelssohn's 'Symphony Cantata' light triumphs over darkness.

 

With the combination of three instrumental movements with a vocal cantata, Mendelssohn also succeeded in making a significant break from the centuries-old separation of instrumental and vocal music. In "Lobgesang",  the original symphonic form is stretched even further than Ludwig van Beethoven had already shown in part in his "Symphony No. 9".
