“So do we dare include in a Handel Festival a solemn Sunday service in the church of his home town, where as a child he once sat at the organ and to which his likeness is turned; dare to sing this church service with his own music, insofar as it contains naught but God’s word, yea, deploys it in all its profundity and splendour, and aims solely to serve the worship of the Highest.” (K. Balthasar, Hallisches Händelfest, Festschrift 1922, pp. 64f.)
