Joseph Haydn / Denis McCaldin
Vocal score
In stock


This setting of the Te Deum, dedicated to the wife of Franz I of Austria, is a rare example of a work from Haydn's late period that doesn't feature soloists. The second of Haydn's Te Deum settings, the work was performed in September 1800 on the name-day of the wife of Haydn's patron, Prince Nicolaus Esterhazy II, and it features the C major tonality and extensive use of trumpets and drums that were often associated with festive ceremony. This edition includes an orchestral reduction by Denis McCaldin, and full details of editorial practice can be found in the full score. Complete orchestral and vocal material is available on hire/rental, and the vocal score is also available on sale.
