The postlude provides a vivid contrast to the prelude. Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)’s third movement from his Organ Sonata No. 5 is indeed joyous and triumphant. Written in the early Romantic period, the style of the piece is quite different from the late Romanticism we heard as the postlude last week. Let this jubilant movement remind us of the message and spirit of Christ, which has overcome and lifted us from death and brokenness in human relationships.
