This week’s Epistle reading is from the eight chapter of St. Paul's letter to the Romans. It describes the captivity of Creation because of the Fall, and the eager longing for release from that captivity.

In the late 18th century, Franz Joseph Haydn composed The Creation, an oratorio that recounts the world before the Fall. Several years ago, I wrote a short article introducing that work, and today, I’ve posted the article on this page.

As I wrote in this article, “The general mood throughout The Creation is one of quiet pleasantness and serenity. The order of Creation is an order that comforts and salves as much as it astonishes. It is happy and homely, but no less glorious for that.”

That page also includes the audio of an interview I had with Calvin Stapert, the author of Playing Before the Lord: The Life and Work of Joseph Haydn. 

There are also links on that page to two different performances of the work, one in English, one in German.

Happy (and hopeful) listening,
