Young choral directors who wish to learn everything about Haydn’s masses should first consult this up-to-date and information-packed book. (This reviewer did not say “read” because the background histories and music analyses are very detailed and, as a result, the volume is inordinately long – and not a book easily read through from cover to cover.)
