Haydn set texts from Genesis, Psalms and Milton’s Paradise Lost.
In Parts 1 and 2, the soloists are archangels, with the chorus as the heavenly host celebrating the “new created world”. In Part 3, Adam and Eve are happily in love in the Garden of Eden. The work finishes with another triumphant chorus “The praise of the Lord will endure forever”.
This event is not recommended for children under 7 years old
