About 'Bist Du Bei Mir'
||Bach, Johann Sebastian (biography)|
|Born:||21 March 1685
|Died:||28 July 1750
|The Artist:||One of the greatest composers of all time. Bach wrote hundreds of pieces for organ, choir, as well as many other instruments. He spent most of his life as a church organist and a choir director. His music combines profound expression with clever musico-mathematical feats, like fugues and cannons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.|
|Composition Info:||This very popular melody is believed to have been in fact composed by Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel (1690-1749). It appeared in Bachs Clavier-Büchlein für Anna Magdalena Bach (BWV 508).|
