In the first of a series of editions featuring the organ music of Bach family members, Heinrich Bach’s Fünf Choralbearbeitungen are collated from a variety of sources including two by a distant cousin of J.S. Bach, J.G.Walther. Heinrich Bach held the position of court and town musician at Arnstadt from 1641, where his duties included playing the organ at the Liebfrauenkirche and Barfüβerkirche. Bach lived and worked in Arnstadt for fifty years until his death on 10 July 1692, after which he was succeeded by his son-in-law, Christoph Herthum. Bach’s funeral sermon, which was delivered at his grave by Johann Gottfried Olearius, described him as an ‘organist who touched the heart’ and a ‘musicus practicus famous for his art’.
