Telemann essays

One morning, after I had been singing with him [the composer Gluck], he said, "Follow me upstaires, Sir, and I will introduce you to one whom all my life I have made my study and endeavoured to imitate." I followed him into his bedroom, and opposite to the head of the bed saw a full-length picture of Handel in a rich frame. "There, Sir," said he, "is the portrait of the inspired master of our art. When I open my eyes in the morning I look upon him with reverential awe and acknowledge him as such, and the highest praise is due to your country for having distinguished and cherished his gigantic genius."
