Hear Olwen playing a prelude by Georg Phillipp Telemann (1681 – 1767) on the tune “How brightly shines” (R&S 182) …

Telemann was a German composer who became music director of the Opera in Hamburg. He was a prolific composer, writing operas, oratoios, cantatas as well as much instrumental music. The accompaniment he has set to the tune sounds very much like a hornpipe – – a British form

Olwen took up the organ in her 40’s after having played the piano since she was 6 years old. She now plays the organ for us most Sundays. to hear her playing the Prelude click the play button below.
