  • One may say that Händel, in particular, is not easily surpassed by anyone in organ playing, unless it be by Bach in Leipzig.
  • I was nearly an hour with Handel yesterday ... he is in no danger upon the whole but I fear or am rather too certain that he will lose a great part of his execution so as to prevent his ever playing any more concertos on the organ.
