About 'Bist du Bei Mir'

Artist: Bach, Johann Sebastian (biography)
Born:21 March 1685 , Eisenach
Died:28 July 1750 , Leipzig
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 Date:1722/5
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).
