In 1767, for the Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Haydn composed his monumental Stabat Mater, the first church work he wrote after entering the service of Prince Esterházy at Eisenstadt in 1761. The Stabat Mater was praised by his contemporaries and frequently performed during his lifetime, and it was published on such a large scale that it became his most well-known sacred work.
