Major work with orchestra & organ, 1750-1850

I would appreciate hearing about any and all choral works written after the Baroque but before 1850 which include an organ as part of an orchestral accompaniment (not just organ). Thanks for any help you can provide.

I can think of two by F.J. Haydn:  “Missa in honorem Beatissimae Virginis Mariae” Hob XXII 4 and “Missa brevis in honorem S. Joannis de Deo” Hob XXII 7.  They are also known as  “Grosse Orgelmesse” and “Kleine Orgelmesse” respectively.  Both are wonderful pieces to conduct (lots of delightful surprises) and perform (lots of satisfaction).
Hope that helps!

Also, Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass with the original scoring:  strings, trumpets, timp., and an unusually prominent organ part.

Lee -- J.K. Paine's great Mass in D Minor almost fits your window (it premiered in 1866 in Berlin but he'd started it earlier).  Coming early in his career, it is somewhat backward looking, i.e. stylistically closer to the pre-1850 early Romantics than the late ones.  It's for SATB soloists, SATB chorus, winds in pairs, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, organ & strings.  All the best, chris hoh
