Concert - Haydn - Missa in tempore belli (Mass in time of War) - Paukenmesse.
Haydn - Missa in tempore belli - 30 March 19
This setting of the mass by Joseph Haydn is also known also as the Paukenmesse (due to the dramatic use of timpani).
Haydn was a deeply religious man, who appended the words “Praise be to God” at the end of every completed score. Composed at
Eisenstadt (Capital of Burgenland, Austria) in August 1796, at the time of Austria’s general mobilisation into war. Four years into the European war that
followed the French Revolution, Austrian troops were doing badly against the French in Italy and Germany, and Austria feared invasion.
