List of masses by Joseph Haydn

Masses composed by Joseph Haydn are listed below. Masses are sorted using chronological indices given by New Grove. The Hoboken catalogue had also placed the masses in presumed chronological order, but further research has undermined that sequence.Oxford Composer Companions: Haydn, ed. David Wyn Jones, Oxford University Press, 2002, p. 475. ISBN 0-19-866216-5]

*No. 1a in G major, Missa 'Rorate coeli desuper' (H. 22/3) (c.1750).
*No. 2 in F major, Missa brevis (H. 22/1) (1750)
*No. 3 in C major, Missa Cellensis in hon. BVM, also known as the Cäcilienmesse (St Cecilia) (H. 22/5) (1766)
*No. 4 Missa 'sunt bona mixta malis' (H. 22/2) (1768; Fragment)
*No. 5 in E flat major, Missa in honorem Beatissimae Virginis Mariae, also known as the Grosse Orgelmesse (Great Organ Mass) (H. 22/4) (1766)
*No. 6 in G major, Missa Sancti Nicolai, Nicolaimesse (H. 22/6) (1772)
*No. 7 in B flat major, Missa brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo, also known as the Kleine Orgelmesse (Little Organ Mass) (H. 22/7) (c.1775)
*No. 8 in C major, Missa Cellensis, Mariazellermesse (H. 22/8) (1782)

Masses nos. 9-14 in a sense form a group: each was composed by Haydn for the Esterházy family, to celebrate the name day of Princess Maria Hermenegild, the wife of Prince Nikolaus II. This was Haydn's principal duty to his old employers at this time of his career.

*No. 9 in B flat major, Missa sancti Bernardi von Offida, also known as the Heiligmesse (H. 22/10) (1796)
*No. 10 in C major, Missa in tempore belli (Mass In Time of War), also known as the Paukenmesse (Kettledrum Mass) (H. 22/9) (1796)
*No. 11 in D minor, Missa in angustiis (Mass in Troubled Times), also known as the Nelson Mass (H. 22/11) (1798)
*No. 12 in B flat major, Theresienmesse (named for the Maria Theresa of the Two Sicilies) (H. 22/12) (1799)
*No. 13 in B flat major, Schöpfungsmesse (Creation Mass) (H. 22/13) (1801)
