    Description

    Mendelssohn's first great orchestral psalm took almost six years to complete, from the initial sketches and the first version of 1830 to the final version of 1835. Its premiere which took place at the Leipzig Gewandhaus did not take place until 1838.Unlike his other orchestral psalms, Mendelssohn took the Latin words from the Vulgate as his principal text which stems from Psalm 113. When he later prepared his own German translation, he made use of Psalm 115 from the Luther Bible.
