Haydn composed this mass at Eisenstadt in August 1796, at the time of Austria's general mobilisation into war. Four years into the European war that followed the French Revolution, Austrian troops were doing badly against the French in Italy and Germany, and Austria feared invasion. Reflecting the troubled mood of his time, Haydn's potent integration of references to battle in the Benedictus and Agnus Dei movements is inspired. The Mass was first performed on December 26, 1796, in the Piarist Church of Maria Treu in Vienna.
