Telemann about Hildesheim
"After having spent four years in Zellerfeld in the Harz Mountains, I received a request from the then famous principal of the gymnasium in Hildesheim, Mr. Magister Loßius, to attend his school. It was customary for Mr. Loßius to write the libretti every year for one or two plays and have them performed in such a way that the recitatives were spoken but the arias were sung."
