Haydn - Nelson Mass

Haydn - Nelson Mass

Regular price £5.99 Sale

The Nelson Mass according to Joseph Haydn’s biographer is arguably the composer’s “greatest single composition”.  It is a work that was written at a time of intense fear for the future of Austria, whose citizens were not in the best of spirits. In 1797-1798 Napoleon Bonaparte had defeated the Austrian army in four major battles, even crossing the Alps and threatening Vienna itself.
