Monday 6 July 2020
Our online shop is open and operating as normal but please note that there are still delays with some international deliveries due to the reduction of the number of international air flights. Packets going abroad from the UK might be held by the courier for a few days while waiting for cargo space. The same applies to new stock arriving with us but if we are out of stock of any product you should not be able to add it to your basket. As international flights increase all deliveries will start returning to normal time scales.

Tuesday 5 May 2020
Our online shop has reopened and is taking orders. For the moment orders are being posted on a weekly basis.

Monday 23 March 2020
In light of the UK Prime Minister Statement made at 8.30pm on Monday 23 March 2020 and given the fact that I do not have my post collected but always take it to the Post Office in person I feel that the only responsible action I can take is to temporarily suspend sales from my online shop. I run Creighton's Collection on my own from my home and this is the first time since I started Creighton's Collection in 2003 that it has shut. I will open again as soon as I can and apologise for any inconvenience this temporary closure may cause.

The Angry Garden & Silvered Night

by Michael Stimpson
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - City of London Choir

The environment and climate change is at the heart of this magnificent recording of The Angry Garden by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and City of London Choir, conductor Hilary Davan Wetton. With a beautifully poignant libretto by poet and author Simon Rae, and enhanced by four outstanding soloists, this five-movement work explores the world from its creation through to its potential destruction by human action. Silvered Night, for piano and orchestra and featuring an exhilarating performance from one of the UK’s leading pianists, Mark Bebbington, is based on a work for solo piano to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

The Stars Have Withdrawn Their Shining

The Stars Have Withdrawn Their Shining

12.00

Michael Stimpson
The Stars Have Withdrawn Their Shining, is connected with the 19th century artist, critic, philosopher, and reformer, John Ruskin (1819-1900). The piece itself follows the form of a sonatina, three movements in all, but in reality it is more a reflection of Ruskin’s life than a musical structure. Throughout, there is a somewhat ethereal and even innocent quality, but this is counter-balanced by elements of trouble and conflict, much of which was found in his personal life. This is most evident in the second movement where a connection is made with Rose La Touche, a young girl with whom Ruskin fell deeply in love, a relationship which ultimately ended in tragedy. The title is taken from a biblical reference seen in a late work of Ruskin, ‘The light shall be darkened in the heavens thereof, and the stars shall withdraw their shining’. During preparation of the piece, I soon became aware of Ruskin’s consciousness of the environment and his ecological thought, and with my own pessimism regarding environmental issues already firmly established, I felt it appropriate to amend the reference for this work. Premiered by Sioned Williams at the Purcell Room on February 10th 2001.

For Clarinet in B flat with Accompaniment of Two Harps & Optional High Voice(s)
Hannah Haynes
1. Through the Window
2. The Tiger Takes Flight
3. Storm Ahead (in the tunnel)
4. The River

In March 2021 Hannah was commissioned by the children’s author, Joan Haig, to compose a short suite of pieces based on selected scenes from her book, Tiger Skin Rug, which is published in the UK by Cranachan. In this suite, the tiger is represented by the clarinet. The clarinet part is intended for an advanced player. The two harp parts are easier, and are intended to be playable by children - either with one on a part, or with a group of players on each harp part. The optional simple voice part in the final movement gives a further opportunity for the inclusion of children in any performance.
