Let G be a connected reductive group with a split maximal torus defined over a nonarchimedean local field. I evaluate a matrix coefficient of the unramified principal series of G known as the "Bessel function" at torus elements of dominant coweight. I show that the Bessel function shares many properties with the Macdonald spherical function of G, in particular the properties described in Casselman's 1980 evaluation of that function. The analogy I demonstrate between the Bessel and Macdonald spherical functions extends to an analogy between the spherical Whittaker function, evaluated by Casselman and Shalika in 1980, and a previously unstudied matrix coefficient.
