Johann Pachelbel was a renowned organist, composer and a music teacher born in the middle of seventeenth century in Nuremberg, Germany. He lived for fifty-two years only; but within that span, he was able to elevate the south German organ tradition to its highest level. Starting his music training under Heinrich Schwemmer he later studied under Kaspar Prentz and through him imbibed the essence of the contemporary Italian music. His musical talent was further accentuated as he shifted to Vienna, where he met many well-known masters. Here he began his career as deputy organist at Stephansdom, thereafter becoming the court organist at Eisenach, church organist at the Predigerkirche in Erfurt, again a court organist at Stuttgart, and a town organist at Gotha, before returning to Nuremberg as a church organist at the St. Sebaldus. All this while, he kept on creating music, which led to the adoption of equal temperament. He is especially famous for his chorale preludes and also for his application of the variation techniques to the setting of Lutheran chorale organ.
