ORDER FORM: The Masses of Joseph Haydn

The Masses of Joseph Haydn

This new book examines chronologically the history, sources, character, style, and performance choices within each of the Haydn Masses in careful detail. All this is set in a framework of Haydn’s involvement with church music over his whole life span, and, in the context of his childhood as a singer, his career as Kapellmeister to the Princes Esterházy, and his international prestige at the turn of the nineteenth century.

Special focus is given to his performance practices in the churches in which he performed these Masses, his evolving style of orchestration, and his crucial, engaging preferences in rhythmic motion and tempi. Every twenty-first century assessment of Joseph Haydn—every contemporary performance of one of his Masses—should be guided and shaped by this major new volume. To order this book, see the order form below.
