Haydn’s Creation
On Tuesday 26th June at 7.00 pm, join us for an uplifting evening of exuberant music-making as the Choir of Westminster Abbey and St James’ Baroque present Haydn’s joyous oratorio The Creation. Inspired to write the piece after hearing Handel’s music at the Abbey in 1791, Haydn uses texts from the Book of Genesis and Milton’s Paradise Lost to tell the Creation story in dramatic fashion, complete with outrageous storms, a boist’rous sea, verdure-clad fields, a silver moon, soaring eagles, great whales, roaring lions, flexible tigers, and a host of other creatures. International opera star Lucy Crowe is the soprano soloist.
