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.
