Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe, Op posth.
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe makes great use of the contrasts between unison, antiphonal and solo textures. Mendelssohn demands an unusually wide dynamic range here, and employs several pronounced changes of tempo to facilitate textual clarity.
