Come and Sing Paukenmesse!

A battlefield cry or a plea for peace? Come and sing to find out!

As Austrians were mobilised to fight off Napoleonic armies, Haydn was charged with writing a new mass, which became known as Paukenmesse thanks to the use of timpani. Its proper name is Missa in tempore belli, Mass in Time of War. We do not know how Haydn himself felt about the bloody wars of the time. He remained silent. Historians were left with the only way to find out: to interpret the music itself. Come and sing Paukenmesse with the Esterhazy Singers, and find your own answer.

The work

Paukenmesse (aka Missa in tempore belli, Mass in Time of War) Hob. XXII/9, in C major. Copies will be available to borrow on the night.
