'Mendelssohn's Lobgesang is undoubtedly the greatest work that has proceeded from any German composer since Beethoven. It is great in plan, great in development, and masterly in detail.' ( - Sacred Harmonic Society London (1844)
That Lobgesang was nevertheless forgotten, despite its qualities and reviews such as the previous, is largely due to comparisons with Beethovenís Ninth Symphony, which immediately sprang up, and the large vocal portion of the work.
