You’re all missing the point. Our worthy constituent, Hammeredklavier, is pushing his agenda again on Michael Haydn. See the second sentence and the last sentence in Paragraph 1.
Why not start a thread about Michael Haydn's church music then it doesn't need to be shoehorned into a Beethoven thread or any other thread for that matter!:tiphat:Because Gregorian modes were fundamental in Beethoven's religious expressions, and Michael Haydn was one his models? What other thread is there about Michael Haydn's church music on this forum? Show me if there's any.
So every post that talks about, for example, Beethoven symphonies regardless of the thread topic it belongs in, is a "strategy to promote them"?
