Next to Handel's Messiah, The Creation perhaps the most frequently performed oratorio. This edition is the first to present the English text as Haydn intended, without the modifications of twentieth-century editions, and is the version used by Haydn in his many public renditions of the work using large forces. The keyboard reduction in this edition is by the Leipzig Cantor A. E. Muller, termed 'the best [and] most idiomatic' by Haydn himself. Full details of sources and editorial method, as well as a bibliography, can be found in the full score. Complete orchestral material and vocal scores are available on hire/rental, and vocal scores are available on sale.

Review quote

Brown's edition is a formidable achievement . . . For the conductor who wishes to perform the work as Haydn did - and especially if large forces will be involved - this is now the score to use. * Choral Journal (USA) * The text is wonderfully clear . . . it appears that a clearly printed score has a positive psychological impact on the user and may make for a better performance. * Mastersinger *
