More horrible than laying off hundreds of first years?

After I received the offer, I had to provide them with the conflicts and background check information at the same time, including contact information for one reference from my then-current employer. You could check a box to specify the new firm should not contact the current employer until you'd cleared conflicts/the remainder of the background check. I checked this box. The firm eventually told me that they were pleased enough with my other references that they were not going to bother calling my current boss. Had they called my then-current boss, my concern would have been similar to the OP's: my boss had always been very, very pleased with my work but was irate that I was leaving, particularly given upcoming workload. I'm not sure what he would have said if asked to serve as a reference, given his anger.
