    Default Handel's famous 1738 Largo and Zelenka's 1730 Mass

    The first eight bars of the Crucifixus of Zelenka's 1730 Mass (ZWV 13) is almost identical to Handel's Largo dating from 1738. It is in the middle of track 3 of Supraphon's CD 11 0816-2 and on page 66 of the Carus-Verlag edition of the music. Zelenka's Crucifixus is marked Larghetto and is in 3/2 time. What can be the explanation for this? Is it just coincidence?
