SECOND only to Handel's Messiah in the affections of British music lovers, Haydn's big Oratorio deals in picturesque fashion with the Creation of tho World, of the growth of herb and flower, and finally with the coming of Man. There can be Taut few listeners who do not know at least parts of it, and who have not enjoyed its fresh and charming melody, set forth as it is with fine expressive orchestral accompaniment.
A man of devout and simple, piety, Haydn approached this task in a spirit of sincere humility. In his own words; ' never was I so pious as when composing the Creation. I knelt down every- day and prayed God to strengthen me for my task.'

' THE MOWER DAMON' is a set of variations on an original theme. The score is prefixed by the following quotation from Andrew Marvdll 's 'Clorinda and Damon,' which is the key to -the mood of the work.
I am the mower Damon, known
By all the meadows I have mown} On me the morn her dews distils Before her darling daffodils,
And, coming home, the evening sweet In cowslip water bathes my feet.
