"Nelson" Mass - Josef Haydn (1798 striking work, Austrian composer met English Admiral in 1800 - ZRG 5325)

£4.99

Product description

At almost the same time - Summer 1798, to be reasonably precise - both the English Admiral, Lord Horatio Nelson, and the Austrian composer, Josef Haydn, were each honouring, a pair of the greatest achievements in their separate careers ... Nelson cornered the French fleet at Abukir, on the coast of Egypt, destroying it in the process ; while Haydn, was composing one of his greatest, post-symphonic ( 104 of them, in all ! ) works, a Mass ...

When the striking Mass - with its new application of symphonic principles, to a choral piece - was premiered, later in the same year, the Viennese public immediately started referring to it as The "Nelson" Mass.

Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton later travelled to Vienna, in 1800, (Great Britain, and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, being military allies, at the time) and met Haydn : They swapped a pair of items, firstly Josef gave the shy English Admiral his pen, by which Horatio reciprocated, via his gold watch !

Side One : "Nelson" Mass, by Haydn (1798), pt. I :-
1) I Kyrie 2) II Gloria 3) III Credo

Side Two : "Nelson" Mass Conclusion :-
1) IV Sanctus 2) V Benedictus 3) VI Angus Dei
