Perhaps the most popular of Mendelssohn's works during his lifetime. The oratorio Paulus was completed in 1836 and was perhaps the most popular of Mendelssohn's works during his lifetime. In 1837 it was even performed in the United States of America.
The oratorio Paulus is an early work by the composer Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. In a romantic tonal language and with a large choir and symphony orchestra, the composer describes the career from Saul to Paul. The first part deals with his persecution of Christians (Stephen's martyrdom by stoning) and the Damascus experience of Christ's appearance. The second part tells of his work as a missionary and the dangers involved.
