Katie Trethewey Soprano, Matthew Minter Tenor, Michael Pearce BassAccompanied by The Heart of England Chamber Orchestra The Creation is generally acknowledged to be Haydn's greatest choral achievement and was so regarded by this wonderful composer. It remains a great favourite with audiences with plenty of memorable tunes and dramatic moments not least at the beginning - 'and there was light'. Schubert's Intende Voci Orationis is a hauntingly beautiful, almost agonised offertorium written in the composer's last year and features a tenor soloist singing against a four part choir. The choir performed this in Derby's twin city of Osnabruck in May 2015.
