Fugato in D von Johann Michael Haydn

...Then there are a few contrapuntal works by Eberlin on small paper bound in blue, and some things by Haydn, which I would like to have for Baron van Swieten whom I visit every Sunday von 12 to 2; —tell me, are there any notable fugues in Haydn’s last masses or verpers, or in both? I would be very grateful if you would have them scored for me bit by bit." (Letter to his father Jan. 4, 1783)
