The Heavens Are Telling

Available from Morning Star Music Publishing at or 800-647-2117
This triumphal chorus from the oratorio, The Creation, received its first public performance in Vienna in 1779. Texts are taken from Genesis and from Milton's epic poem, Paradise Lost. This was the first piece published with both German and English as original texts. Original English text was translated into German for Haydn to set (he felt uncomfortable with setting English) to music. The English text was subsequently added and thus was first released with both texts underlaid. Optional MIDI file available separately (on MIDI disk LMF-1001)
