Recording of Choral Sections only of The Creation (click on blue link) Jonathan has kindly made available to us a recording of The Creation by Simon Rattle and the Birmingham Philharmonic from which he has removed all of the recitatives, arias and solo ensembles so that there is now only the parts which the choir will sing.
