About 'Puer natus in Bethlehem BWV 603'
|Artist:||Bach, Johann Sebastian (biography) (sheet music)|
|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 canons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.|
Puer natus in Bethlehem (A child is born in Bethlehem) is a medieval Latin Christmas hymn. The thirteenth-century text is traditionally associated with a fourteenth-century tune of the same name.
J.S.Bach wrote a contrapuntal setting of the melody in his work from Orgelbüchlein - Puer natus in Bethlehem BWV 603.
