Description:
Thomas Frederick Handel Candlyn (1892–1964) was an English-born organist, composer and choirmaster who spent most of his professional career at two Episcopal Church congregations in New York.

He was born December 17, 1892 in Davenham, Cheshire, England, the son of Thomas John Candlyn, an organist, and received the Bachelor of Music degree from Durham University in 1911. In 1915 he was offered the position of organist and choirmaster at St. Paul’s Church, Albany, and he emigrated to the United States. He was to remain at St. Paul’s for twenty-eight years. In 1918 he became a United States citizen.

In 1943 he succeeded T. Tertius Noble as organist and choirmaster at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, New York, where he remained until his retirement in 1954. He composed two hundred works, primarily anthems, cantatas, service settings and organ solos.

"Three Organ Preludes" were published by Carl Fischer in 1957. They are dedicated "For Betty Candlyn Dillenbeck," the composer's daughter.

These works have a nice sense of "distinctness" about them. They are sort of a mix between English music with American Episcopalian. On this organ, they have an almost "Frenchness" about them.

Performance notes and individual timings are given in the First Comment.

I dedicated this upload with friendship to our member Nattie155. Nattie, I hope you like and enjoy these, as well as finding them useful!

The score is attached below, as well as a photo of Candlyn at the St. Paul's, Albany organ, a photo of the organ, of the church, and sadly, the day it was demolished in October of 1964.
