Johann Pachelbel

A German organist, important predecessor of Bach, and composer of organ, sacred vocal, and chamber music. Pachelbel was a gifted vocal composer and a pioneer in "word printing" -- correspondences in notational symbolism to the meaning of the words, such as in his motet Durch Adams Fall ("Through Adam's Fall"), which contains a falling figure in the bassline. ~ Mary K. Scanlan
