CRITIC REVIEW:

“THE LAST JUDGMENT by Louis Spohr is one of the most important oratorios of the early 19th century. Accompanied recitatives, short contrapuntal solos and above all great choruses characterize the musical structure. Contrary to other apocalyptic compositions, Spohr focuses on a positive, comforting fundamental attitude of joyful anticipation, making manifest the praise of God and the portrayal of omnipotence, kindness and righteousness.”
