In the beginning
Franz Joseph Haydn
[Raphael] In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth;
and the earth was without form and void;
and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
[Chorus] And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
[Uriel] And God saw the light, that it was good:
and God divided the light from the darkness.
from "The Creation"
Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
