Pachelbel, Johann

(baptized 1 September 1653, Nuremberg, Germany – buried 9 March 1706, Nuremberg)
   He served as organist at the Pridigerkirche at Erfurt from 19 June 1678 to 15 August 1690. After two short-term positions in Würtemberg and Gotha, he was invited by his home city authorities in 1695 to be organist of St. Sebaldus at Nuremberg without the customary examination. He remained there until his death.
   His compositions include 66 chorale settings of various types, including chorale fugues and cantus firmus settings, 11 motets, all but one for cori spezzati, 11 sacred concertos, 13 Magnificats and other versicles for vespers, two masses, and 98 "Magnificat" fugues written for St. Sebaldus church. These fugues, constituting one of the most ambitious compilations before Johann Sebastian Bach, are so called not because they take the Magnificat tones as subjects, but because they give the choir the pitch for singing that vespers canticle.
