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.
