(1631 - 1663)

Thomas Baltzar came to England in 1655 from the north-German city of Lübeck. Like many German and English composers, he wrote in both the Italian and French idioms of his day. His preludes alternate, like an Italian Baroque keyboard toccata, between rhapsodic figuration in quick single notes and polyphonic (chordal) playing.
