Haydn made two settings of the Ambrosian song of praise the Te Deum. The second of these was written for the Empress Marie Therese, to a commission from the court of Vienna; a work of Haydn's last period, it dates from 1800. Its large orchestra gives this work, which makes no use of solo singers, a particular splendour of sound skin to that of the choruses in Haydn's Creation.
