Here is Video #27 in the 40 Piece Challenge (2017-2018). Aria in G Major by Georg Philipp Telemann is a Baroque selection found in level 6 Repertoire book of the Royal Conservatory of Music Celebration Series (2015).
This graceful piece is the fifth movement of his Overture in G Major, TWV 32:13. Telemann composed sacred and secular music and lived during the late Baroque period. He was the godfather of CPE Bach (son of J.S. Bach) and held many music director positions in Germany. Britannica.com says of Telemann: «His music was natural in melody, bold in harmonies, buoyant in rhythm, and beautifully orchestrated.» This particular aria has a beautiful, singing melody.
