Lucy Crowe joins the Abbey Choir and St James’ Baroque in Haydn’s exuberant oratorio.

HAYDN The Creation (sung in English)

The Choir of Westminster Abbey | St James’ Baroque

Lucy Crowe soprano | Mark Dobell tenor | Jonathan Brown bass

James O’Donnell conductor

Acclaimed soprano Lucy Crowe joins the Abbey Choir and St James’ Baroque for a performance of Haydn’s exuberant oratorio The Creation in this final choral concert of the season. Considered by some to be Haydn’s single greatest achievement, it is thought that he was inspired to write The Creation after attending performances of Handel's Messiah and Israel in Egypt in the Abbey as part of the 1791 Handel Festival.
