J.W. Franck worked from 1673 to 1679 as Kapellmeister in Ansbach (Germany) and then lived from 1679 to 1690 in Hamburg. Here he initially composed several geistliche Sing-Spiele. From 1682 to 1685 he held the position of cantor in St. Mary's Cathedral. From 1690 he lived in London, going there first as a concert promoter (1690 to 1693) and was thereafter only active as composer. Besides operas, he produced some songs, cantatas and numerous hymn tunes.
