Sunday music spot: Exerpts from Haydn's Creation, including 'The heavens are telling'

Starting with "In the beginning" and concluding with the "The Heavens are Telling," 

the version with the words in the right order.

E.g. "The firmament displays his wondrous handiwork," as in Psalm 19 verse one (King James Version, "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork,") and not the daft libretto you usually hear in which the subject and object of the phrase were reversed by being badly translated from English to German and back again to give "The wonder of his work displays the firmament!"

Sung by St Peter's singers of Leeds, conducted by Simon Lindley.
