Handel and Music             117

I should have said, " Certainly not, nor more than a little, if
you like/' Nevertheless I think as a matter of fact that
there is a little forcing. I remember that as a boy this always
struck me as a strange arrangement of the words, but it was
not until I came to write a chorus myself that I saw how it
came about. I do not suspect any forcing when it comes to
" And all flesh shall see it together."
