Haydn: The Creation


The first event of the 1997 Festival was a stirring performance of Haydn Creation by a chorus of 95 singers who were conducted by Michael Lane. It proved to be a tremendous experience for the singers and, whilst the performance was not perfect, especially in the less well known final section, the result was robust and joyful. The soloists, Julie De'Ath Lancaster, Gordon Pike and James Robertson gave an impressive performance, full of power and good presentation and the organist, Peter Adcock, played the very difficult score quite brilliantly.
