* Joseph Haydn
The name of the “Missa Sancti Nicolai” refers to the composition of
the Mass for
St. Nicholas Day in 1772. Every year on this day a Mass was held in
honor of the
Prince of Esterházy who shared his name-day with St. Nicholas.
It is thought that Haydn wrote this composition specifically to
thank the Prince for allowing him
to return to Eisenstadt. Some years later, trumpet and timpani parts
were added to the work.
As with the “Great Organ Mass” these additional parts were not
actually written by Haydn
himself, but simply authorized by him. They are included in the
score and performance material
so that both versions can be performed.
