Richard Whittall on Soundtracks

 …during the lead up to Phil Neville’s decisive game-winning penalty against Chelsea last weekend, Zadok the Priest came up on my iTunes player. Handel’s expectant arpeggios accompanied Neville’s nervous placing of the ball, and finally, after he scored and had just walked up to the crowd, the choir entered on a double forte just as Neville stuck out his arms to Everton’s supporters. Writing about it does it no justice. It was magical. (Richard Whittall, On SoundtracksThe Run of Play).
