Two of Haydn's finest works, nominally associated with war, but richly devotional in spirit, and exemplary in their synthesis of vocal and instrumental music. Both masses were written in the late 1790s when Europe was at war and first performed at Eisenstadt, the Austrian country estate of composer's lifelong patrons.
