Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) was and still is one of the most prolific composers in history (at least in terms of surviving oeuvre) and was considered by his contemporaries to be one of the leading German composers of the time.

He was compared favorably both to his friend Johann Sebastian Bach, who made Telemann the godfather and namesake of his son Carl Philipp Emanuel, and to George Frideric Handel, whom Telemann also knew personally.

Telemann's music incorporates several national styles (French, Italian) and is even at times influenced by Polish popular music.

He remained at the forefront of all new musical tendencies and his music is an important link between the late Baroque and early Classical styles.

The Stade Hus/Schnitger organ is known as one of the most important monuments of the era. The instrument shows characteristics from both builders, as they influenced each other in a positive way.

The first organist of the St. Cosmae in Stade was Vincent Lübeck who worked there for 30 years.

Two versions of the same chorale melody:

The first as with melody in the soprano.
The second as a Bicinium.
