Haydn's oratorio 'The Creation' is presented by The Van Swieten Band and Ealing Choral Society under Jonathan Williams, with Siân Winstanley (soprano), Andrew Tortise (tenor) and Robert Davies (bass).

(Inspired by Handel's oratorios while in London, Haydn set 'The Creation' to text originally intended for Handel himself, taken from John Milton's 'Paradise Lost', the 'Book of Genesis' and the 'Book of Psalms'. The resultant oratorio, depicting the creation of the world, is considered to be one of the masterpieces of the classical era.)
