Haydn, Johann Michael

(baptized 14 September 1737, Rohrau, Austria – 10 August 1806, Salzburg)
   Concertmaster (1763– death) and organist at Trinity Church (1777–death), he succeeded Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as organist of the cathedral in Salzburg (1781–death). Haydn’s sacred works comply with the reforms of Joseph II: he wrote some 100 a cappella Latin offertories and graduals to replace concerted ones. He edited a German hymnal (Der {}heilige Gesang zum Gottesdienste in der römisch-katholischen Kirche, 1790) and wrote eight masses in German, presumably to satisfy reformers’ desires for vernacular in the services. He also wrote 38 Latin masses and numerous other sacred works. (at)
