Joseph Haydn: Maria Teresa Mass
In this music we find Haydn’s choral writing at its very best with the variety, rhythmic energy and contrapuntal skill of a composer at the height of his powers
Haydn named this mass after Maria Theresa of the Two Sicilies, empress consort of Francis II. It is also known as Theresienmesse
Mass. It was premiered in September 1799 in Bergkirche near Eisenstadt, Austria, the estate of
his patron Prince Nikolaus Esterhazy.
