Concerts etc:

6/4/19 – Ashtead Choral Society, under the baton of their new conductor, Andrew Storey, will be performing Haydn’s Oratorio “The Creation” at St Martin’s Church, Church Street, Epsom on Saturday 6th April, starting at 7.30pm.
Franz Joseph Haydn was inspired to write his own oratorio on a visit to London, when he heard Handel’s music at one of the famous Handel festivals held throughout the 18th century in Westminster Abbey. Haydn composed his masterpiece from an English text, originally submitted to Handel but unused, which was then translated several times between German and English by the Imperial Librarian, von Swieten. This superb bi-lingual Oratorio tells the biblical story of the creation of the world with drama and optimism, with memorable choruses such as “The Heavens are Telling” and “Achieved is the Glorious Work”, and wonderful baroque solos.
The Creation will be performed in its English version by Ashtead Choral Society, accompanied by the Kent Sinfonia and with soloists Lucy Cox, Mark Chaundy and James Oldfield.
