“Arguably Haydn’s greatest single composition”, as declared by his chief biographer, H.C. Robbins Landon, Haydn composed this highly dramatic and exciting work in 1798. Titled Missa in Angustiis (Mass for troubled times), it was later nicknamed Nelson Mass following a performance attended by Admiral Nelson in 1800.
