Haydn: The Creation presents a thorough treatment of the genesis, structure, and performance implications of this perennial favorite. This volume draws upon recent research on the oratorio and on The Creation in particular. Incorporating the author's own research over the last 15 years, this volume traces the two-hundred-year history of the piece, analyzes its style, and brings together in a single source the relevant criticism and significant observations of the other specialists in this field, making it the definitive volume on this work for decades to come.Bruce MacIntyre is Associate Professor of Music at Brooklyn College and CUNY Graduate Center where he teaches general courses in musicology as well as specialized courses on late eighteenth-century music, the mass and oratorio, and the music of Haydn.
