XXII, Novello 6, [1] was written in It was Haydn's last major work. It is because of the prominence of the winds in this mass and "the German terminology for a kind of wind ensemble, Harmonie ," [2] that this mass setting is called "Harmoniemesse" or "Wind Band Mass". Besides flute , 2 oboes , 2 clarinets , 2 bassoons , 2 horns in B-flat, 2 trumpets in B-flat, the mass also calls for choir, timpani , strings, and organ, the latter supplying figured bass for most of the duration.

The Harmoniemesse is the last of the series, and is his last completed work of any size. We are accustomed to prominent wind solos in Mozart, but Haydn was a generation older, and retained the spare orchestral writing of his youth for much of his career, with the wind doubling or just reinforcing the strings.

If Haydn tended to be conservative in his orchestration, he led the way in matters of structure. Thus the Kyrie of the Harmoniemesse is set as one mighty slow movement, incorporating solo and chorus sections, while the Gloria and Credo are each divided into three movements — as late as Mozart had divided the Gloria of his C minor Mass into no fewer than eight movements. Martin Chusid has even proposed that the entire work should be thought of as the equivalent of three symphonies, the first consisting of the Kyrie and the Gloria, the second the Credo, and the third the Sanctus, Benedictus and Agnus Dei.

Musical life was becoming increasingly centred on the concert hall and the opera house, and few composers in the intellectual mainstream around can have remained unaffected by the rationalist philosophies of the Enlightenment.

Haydn became a freemason in the s, but he seems to have retained his simple faith throughout his life. Nevertheless, Haydn, like other Austrian musicians, was profoundly affected by successive reforms of church music during his career.

The empress Maria Theresa limited the use of trumpets and timpani in the Mass during the s. More serious, in Joseph II, as part of a wide-ranging attempt to reform the church according to his Enlightenment ideas, decreed that instrumental ensembles were only to be allowed in Masses on Sundays and Feast days. Haydn trat in den 80er Jahren des In den 50er Jahren des Movement 1: Kyrie. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison. Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.

Laudamus te, benedicimus te, adoramus te, glorificamus te. Glory be to God on high. And on earth peace to men of good will. We praise thee, we bless thee, we adore thee, we glorify thee. Domine Deus, rex caelestis, Deus Pater omnipotens. Domine Fili unigenite, Jesu Christe. Qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis. Qui tollis peccata mundi, suscipe deprecationem nostram. Qui sedes ad dexteram Patris, miserere nobis. We give thee thanks for thy great glory. Lord God, heavenly king, God the almighty Father.

O Lord, the only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Thou who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Thou who takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayer. Thou who sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy upon us.

Cum Sancto Spiritu in gloria Dei Patris. For thou alone art the Holy One. Thou alone art the Lord. Thou, Jesus Christ, alone art the Most High. With the Holy Ghost in the glory of God the Father.

Deum de Deo, lumen de lumine, Deum verum de Deo vero, genitum, non factum, consubstantialem Patri, per quem omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines et propter nostram salutem descendit de caelis.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible. God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven. Crucifixus etiam pro nobis, sub Pontio Pilato passus et sepultus est.

And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary and was made man. And was crucified also for us; under Pontius Pilate he suffered and was buried. Et ascendit in caelum, sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris, et iterum venturus est cum gloria judicare vivos et mortuos, cujus regni non erit finis. Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum et vivificantem, qui ex Patre Filioque procedit; qui cum Patre et Filio simul adoratur et conglorificatur; qui locutus est per Prophetas. Et unam sanctam catholicam et apostolicam ecclesiam.

Confiteor unum baptisma in remissionem peccatorum. Et expecto resurrectionem mortuorum et vitam venturi saeculi. And the third day he rose again according to the scriptures. And ascended into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father, and he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.

Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua. Hosanna in excelsis. Holy, holy, holy Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi. Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world. Grant us peace. Track-specific metadata.
