Joseph Haydn made two settings of the Ambrosian song of praise the Te Deum. The second of these is a work of Haydn's last period and was written around 1800 for the Empress Marie Therese. Its large orchestra gives this work, which makes no use of solo singers, a particular splendour of sound akin to that of the choruses in Haydn's Creation.
