Artist bio


Johann Pachelbel (in German, pronounced ['johan ˈpaxɛlbl̩], [ˈpaxl̩bɛl], or [paˈxɛlbl̩]; in English, pronounced /ˈpækəlbɛl/, /ˈpɑːkəlbɛl/, or /ˈpɑːkəbɛl/;[1] baptized September 1, 1653 – buried March 9, 1706[2]) was a German Baroque composer, organist and teacher, who brought the south German organ tradition to its peak. He composed a large body of sacred and secular music, and his contributions to the development of the chorale prelude and fugue have earned him a place among the most important composers of the middle Baroque era.[3]
