In keeping with the concert motto of the cantata text "Herr, wenn ich nur Dich hab", which has been set to music several times and is based on the 73rd Psalm, the concert will feature sacred works. Karl Altenburg will lead the discussion about the special Stiftung Händel-Haus exhibit presented at the concert, an Elector's Bible: "Herrn Lutheri Version gantz unverruckt" (Nuremberg 1692). The long-time museum employee is the curator of the annual exhibition in 2021, so the concert also refers to the special exhibition "Get off the pedestal. Of Heroes and Redeemers", which can be seen in the Handel House from 24 February 2021.
