    The earliest of Haydn’s known works, which he composed at the age of 16 for the first mass celebrated in the new Roman Catholic Dome in Timișoara on 8 September 1754. While this work is overly long, several sections bear witness of Haydn’s incredible talent even at this youg age.
  • Applausus MH 144
  • Hermann MH 148
    A ballet pantomime in four parts which is only available from an authentic copy (F-Pn D-5674) by Werigand Rettensteiner, with corrections in Haydn’s hand. The first two parts (Del Ballo la parte prima and seconda) comprise short instrumental pieces. The third part (Dedicatio) contains Latin and German recitativos and arias praising the Germanic chieftain Arminius. It concludes with a male choir Magne Deus Teutonum. The final part (Le Marcie) features two pifferi and several percussion instruments (instrumento d’acciaio, tamburo, tamburino, triangolo).
  • The Proprium Missæ project now also includes MH 277, 278, 326, 351–353, 355, 356, 360, 363–365, 369–378, 380, 382, 385–387, and 829.
