Contents
  • CD 1: The Representation of Chaos -- In the beginning -- Now vanished by the holy beams -- And God made the firmament -- What wonder doth his work reveal -- And God said: Let the waters -- Rolling in foaming billows -- And God said: Let all the earth bring forth grass -- Now robed in cool refreshing green -- And the heavenly host -- Awake the harp -- And God said: Let there be lights -- In shining splendor -- The heavens are telling -- And God said: Let the waters bring forth -- On mighty wings -- And God created great whales -- And the angels struck -- In Fairest raiment
  • CD 2: And God said: Let earth bring forth -- Straight opening her fertile womb -- Now shines the brightest glory -- And God created Man -- In native worth -- And God saw everything -- Fulfilled at last the glorious work -- From thee, O Lord -- In rosy mantle -- By then with grace -- Now is our duty -- Sweet companion! -- O Happy pair -- Sing ot God
