Ignatz Moscheles in Birmingham - 26 August, 1846

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 325:

Mendelssohn achieved his most brilliant triumph in this day's performance of his Elijah. In my opinion this work has more vividness and more dramatic variety than 'St. Paul,' and yet it is written in the purest oratorio style, and places him yet another step higher.
