We were so unfortunate as to lose both the “Seven Words” and the “Passion Music,” but have had the satisfaction of hearing the “Tod Jesu” twice in Berlin. It is a learned work, not designed for amusement merely, but rather to paint with a deep coloring, the death scene of the Saviour of the world. It is, in general, too serious for a popular audience. “It is quite tedious,” said a German lady to me, “but yet it is very grand.” It does not afford sufficient immediate musical gratification for many; indeed it appeals to a higher principle than that of the mere sensuous, — even to the religious; and to appreciate it, one must be both musically and religiously educated and inclined.
