    "Haydn’s masterpiece. A top ten choral classic. Brilliant from start to finish. 'The Creation ... is one of the towering works of all time. Though I pity music lovers who do not know the piece, part of me envies them the experience they have in store. Imagine an oratorio with the awesome intricacy of Bach’s Mass in B minor yet the sublime contentment of Mozart’s Magic Flute, and you will have some idea of The Creation.'
