Haydn’s Mass in B-flat major, also known as the “Creation Mass” was composed in 1801. It is one of the six great Mass settings that forms the crowning glory of his vocal music along with “The Creation” and “The Seasons”.
Continuing the collaboration between Bärenreiter and the G. Henle publishing company regarding Haydn’s large-scale choral works, operas and symphonies, this edition is based on the G. Henle Complete Edition of the “Works of Joseph Haydn”.
