Entertainment vs. Elevation

“My Lord, I should be so sorry if I only entertained them. I wish to make them better.”

-George Fredric Handel, in response to a patron’s compliment on the excellent ‘entertainment’ at the premiere of “Messiah”

Seems even classical composers such as Handel understood worship music is at heart a vertical praise to God and a horizontal challenge to man to be more like their heavenly Father.
