:-\ Shouldn't this be in the polling section of the forum?

Haydn should never be shunted off to that this obscure, hidden corner of the forum   :(

Almost by definition no spot where Haydn is to be found can be obscure or hidden.  (Although I grant that there are some corners of Haydn that are more obscure and hidden than others.)
Every kind of music is good, except the boring kind.

Opus 64, with op. 64 no. 6 in E-flat being my favorite of that set.

My favorite of all?  I'd have to think about that...

Good man. It deserves a vote. I was tempted myself.

I voted for it because I love the Fuga Soggetti's (or Soggy Fugues, as I like to nickname them)  ;D

A nod for 20. Good to see. And now I have company at table #64! Waiter! An allegro for my friend here!
