While visiting England in the late 1700s, Haydn was overwhelmed by his first experiences of hearing Handel’s oratorios, inspiring him to compose a choral work of his own. Haydn’s rich tapestry of harmony, orchestration, and word-painting brings to life the texts of Genesis, Psalms, and Milton’s Paradise Lost in a way unparalleled throughout history. The Creation is a work of the Enlightenment in which science and religion sit happily side by side. Haydn’s inspired music depicts both the majesty of the universe and the mystery of the Divine.
