Franz Joseph Haydn, Te Deum in C

I must yet again thank R.J. Stover for his piece [here] "Too Late Have I Loved Thee: On The Genius Of Franz Joseph Haydn" on the Catholic World Report Site.  Because of this article I've been listening to some fantastic music over the last few weeks, such as today's selection, a musical setting to the ancient hymn Te Deum. So, thanks again, R.J. Stover - but I'm still not clear on why we have to stop calling Haydn "Papa" . . .
