Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - 1849
from Recent Music and Musicians, pages 354-355:
'Christus,' the fragment left behind by Mendelssohn, is now being studied by our pupils; it consists of five or six choruses, recitatives, a trio of a dignified kind sung by the three magi, to the words, 'Say, where is He that is born King of Judah?. A chorus, 'Daughters of Zion,' and another of the people, 'Crucify Him' - these are masterpieces, and although fragmentary in character are sure to become famous.
