The large and magnificent piece is in the pattern of the late Baroque “number Mass,” a solemn concerted Mass where each of the five sections of the Ordinary is subdivided into numerous complete and independent movements. There are festive choruses, elaborate arias, ariosos, ensembles and four massive concluding fugues. The Kyrie and certain arias are conservative in style, while the remainder is distinctly more forward looking. The fugues are contrapuntal fireworks, especially the overwhelming “Et vitam venturi,” which functions as a concluding highpoint of the Credo and supports the notion that Haydn's primary aim is the musical representation of salvation.
