Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706)


German organist and composer Johann Pachelbel, b. August 1653, d. Mar. 3, 1706, is noted by music historians for his influence on Johann Sebastian Bach. Pachelbel was himself a composer of importance, and his works are still played. His best works are his chorale variations and chorale preludes. His son Carl Theodorus Pachelbel, (born November 24, 1690, death Charleston, September 14, 1750) immigrated to the American colonies in about 1730 and became a prominent musician in Newport, New York, and Charleston. - Malaspina Biography
