Sandgate Singers Haydns Creation Poster

Sandgate Singers and The Sussex Sinfonia: The Creation by Haydn at Arundel Cathedral.

Sandgate Singers your local community choir look forward to welcoming you to our Easter concert! Haydn was inspired to write his Creation after listening to Handel’s ‘Messiah’ and ‘Israel in Egypt’. It is a dramatic musical setting of the biblical story of our universe, moving from chaos and darkness to the first appearance of light, followed by the emergence of water, landscapes, plants and beasts of air, land and sea. The third part of this work is the story of the love between Adam and Eve, inspired by John Milton’s great poem, Paradise Lost. Peter Allwood (Sandgate’s Musical Director) has taken this wonderful work to a new level with his idea of special atmospheric lighting which takes us on an exciting journey of music and light. We hope you enjoy the experience with us.

This concert will also be our way of supporting the Love Your Hospital Charity, which I am sure you all feel is incredibly worthwhile. This Charity covers all 3 of our local Hospitals at Worthing, Shoreham and St Richard’s in Chichester.

A night to remember for all.
