A Portrait of Mendelssohn

Yale University Press

In contrast to England's positive reception of Felix Mendelssohn during the 1850s, Germany was more critical of the composer. In particular, Mendelssohn's sacred music was the subject of controversy in the period immediately following his death. In a review of the posthumously published Three Psalms, op. 78 in 1850, Eduard Krüger expressed his reservations about Mendelssohn and his sacred music. Krüger's critical appraisal of Three Psalms drew a sharp rebuke from Wilhem Wauer, whose response vividly illustrates the differences in opinion about Mendelssohn's sacred music in Germany during the period.
