Notes & Reviews:

Friedrich Wilhelm Zachow (1663-1712) succeeded Samuel Ebart as the organist at St. Mary's Church in Halle in 1684. Zachow was active over a period of 28 years and numbered among the most renowned church musicians of his epoch, and his high art of cantata composition was famed throughout central Germany. Just how much Handel valued his teacher's music is shown by his continued practice of citing Zachow's compositions in his own work, even during his London years.

Gramophone Magazine
It seems to me that their authenticity is unlikely but it is entirely understandable that the enterprising Thuringian performers have devoted efforts to reviving what might possibly be among the very few scraps of Handel's earliest attempts at composition...the ensemble of solo voices communicates the pious texts sincerely...A rewarding curiosity.
