Concert: Ripon Choral Society - Haydn's 'Creation'
John Dunford - conductor
Laurie Ashworth - soprano
Ronan Busfield - tenor
Henry Neill - bass
Experience Haydn at the height of his compositional powers with his remarkable and vivid oratorio, 'The Creation'.
Evoking the wonders of the universe, the creation story takes us from chaos to the ordered beauty of paradise using words from Milton's Paradise Lost and the Book of Genesis.
When chided for taking too long to write the work, Haydn merely replied, "I spend much time over it because I intend it to last a long time".
