The Cathedral Choral Society saluted the Centennial of the Washington National Cathedral with a performance of Mendelssohn's dramatic oratorio Elijah, Sunday, May 18, 2008. The work, from which come such well-known sacred choral anthems as He watching over Israel and Lift Thine Eyes to the mountains, features chorus, soloists, and full orchestra. Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton and conductor J. Reilly Lewis offer a brief musical triptych through the work.
