Welcome to my Organists Online RegisteredPlus webpage. Please scroll down and find out all the interesting things from my career. This page includes video links, audio links, and web links.

⇒ EDUCATION:
There are rumours that, when I was a child, my father forbade me to study music. I ask you to consider who likely it was that a small child could smuggle a clavichord or spinet up into an attic and there, practise by night without an adult noticing at some time. When I was about 8 years, Duke Johann Adolf heard me play and recommended that I was given more instruction. Thereafter, Friedrich Zachow became the only teacher I ever had. I did a stint studying Liberal Arts at Halle University.

⇒ CAREER:
After brief periods at Halle Cathedral and in the orchestra in Hamburg opera house, I travelled to Italy, and there met with and worked with all the greatest composers. After returning to Germany (Hannover), I followed Fortune and Advancement to London, where I made and lost more money than many of you will ever see.

⇒ SPECIAL INTERESTS:
Food, then more food, then even more food. I also rejoice in wigs and fine clothing.
