Perhaps the most majestic achievement in the last phase of Haydn's musical career, The Creation
is a choral masterwork of seamless perfection. It is also among the most popular oratorios of all time, celebrating the glories of nature, man's innocent joy, and his gratitude to God for creating simple things for his pleasure and benefit. Extolling the wonders described in the Book of Genesis, the work combines the traditions of a Handel oratorio and the Viennese mass with Haydn's own symphonic style.
Reproduced from an authoritative early edition, this score appears with bar-numbered movements and includes a text underlay in both German and English. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable, high-quality, conveniently sized volume will be the edition of choice for music students and music lovers alike.
