(1410 - 1473)

The blind organist Conrad Paumann was born in Nuremberg, where he became organist of St Sebald’s and in 1447 was appointed town organist. He left this position, without permission, for the materially greatly superior conditions of service at the court in Munich, where he was employed by successive Dukes and was succeeded, after his death, by his son Paul. He enjoyed considerable fame as one of the greatest organists of his day, performing in various cities of Germany and Italy.

Organ Music

While relatively little of Paumann’s work survives apart from his Fundamenta (treatises on organ playing), his influence is apparent in works contained in the Lochamer Liederbuch and the Buxheimer Orgelbuch. He is credited also with the invention of German lute tablature.
