Although the music of the younger Haydn brother was highly regarded by his contemporaries, his music was forgotten in the 19th century and still waits to be rediscovered. One of his more well-known works is the central piece on the present CD, the German Mass "Hier liegt vor deiner Majestat" MH 560 (Here before thy majesty), a work which is musically the epitome of south-German/Austrian Catholicism and which to this day is still a part of church music practice in this region. Score available separately - see item CA.5456000.
