1653 - 1706

Johann Pachelbel was a German Baroque composer, organist, and teacher, who brought the south German organ tradition to its peak. He composed a large body of sacred and secular music, including a substantial corpus for the organ and harpsichord, and his contributions to the development of the Chorale Prelude and the Fugue have earned him a place among the most important composers of the middle Baroque era. He also composed a remarkable four-voice Passacaglia which is now called the Canon in D, regularly abused at weddings.  (Read more: Wikipedia article.)
