Missa brevis F-Dur, Hob. XXII:1 „Jugendmesse“

The Missa brevis in F, Hob.XXII:1, also known as „Mass of Youth” (“Jugendmesse”), exists in two versions. The original version was written for two solo sopranos, four-part choir, strings and organ around 1749, when Haydn was about 17 years old. Haydn rediscovered his early composition many years later and was impressed by its “melody and a certain youthful fire”. The second version, which Haydn rewrote for his employer Prince Nicolaus II. of Esterházy in 1805, is intended for larger orchestration including woodwinds, brass and kettledrums. The mass is characterized by its compactness and folk-like melodies. Both the “et incarnatus est” and the Sanctus are adagios – slow and contemplative. In the Benedictus the two solo soprano singers sing together in a duet. Some sections display late baroque period influences. The first performance of the mass at the Imperial Chapel took place on 31 January 1909
