Haydn - The Creation


Soloists: Claire Coleman (soprano), Nathan Vale (tenor),
Tristan Hambleton (bass)

When Haydn was asked why his late choral masterpiece had taken him nearly two years to write, he replied: "because I intend it to last for a long time". First performed in 1799, it was an immediate and enduring success. H. C. Robbins Landon wrote: "Perhaps only a very old and very wise man. could so poignantly recapture the bliss of the early morning, the magic of the moonlight, or the rapture of a spring day". Although the work of a mature composer, in many ways 'The Creation' anticipates the next century in its dramatic orchestral colours, adventurous harmonies and textures and in its structural unity. Sung in English.

Assembly Rooms, Dedham

Summer Serenade

A change of style for Colchester Choral Society as we combine music in a lighter mood with our end of year celebration, in the elegant eighteenth-century Dedham Assembly Rooms. This summer, we will be presenting a concert performance of the music from Gilbert and Sullivan's delightful comic opera 'The Pirates of Penzance'. We will be singing the roles of tender-hearted pirates, lumbering policemen and dainty maidens, as we tell the story of Frederic, a pirate's apprentice, who falls in love with Mabel, the daughter of the very modern Major-General Stanley.
