Our spring concert will be on May 19th at 3pm at the Fine Arts Center on the campus of UMass Amherst. The featured work will be Haydn’s The Creation for chorus, soloists, and orchestra. We will sing this in English, using the fine Carus edition that provides just the English. At $15 this is a really good deal, and it will help rehearsals go smoothly to have everyone singing from the same score. I realize that many of you have different editions from past performances, but I would ask you to please use this one instead.
Cyberbass has complete study files for Haydn’s Creation, with the option to have your part played louder than the others. Although the sounds are electronically generated, many people find these useful.
Here is a link to a spirited performance, which will give you an idea of what this work will sound like with the orchestra and soloists. There are links below the video that will take you to the beginning of each section.
