Johann Sebastian Bach left his mark on the world by composing some of the best music of the Baroque period.
Born in Germany in 1685 to a musical family, Bach was encouraged to study many instruments, including the organ. When Bach was orphaned at the age of 10, an older brother ensured that young Johann’s musical training continued.
As an adult, Bach was employed as staff organist by many different benefactors, courts, and churches. His talent, and some might say his testy temperament, gave him the opportunity to work in many different settings. During his lifetime, Bach was regarded as a skilled composer, organist, musician, and organ critic. He composed cantatas, secular music, religious hymns, and chorales for voice and organ. which have been neatly cataloged into the Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis”, or BWV. Forty-six chorale preludes pieces, BWV 599-644, make up Bach’s “Orgelbuchlein”, or “Little Organ Book”. The Orgelbuchlein compositions provide liturgical music for church services, while teaching both basic and cutting-edge organ technique.
The composition featured on Brief in Bach’s own handwriting is a Christmas hymn entitled, “Der Tag, Der Ist So Freudenreich”: The Day, it is so Full of Joy.
