(1686 - 1764)

A son of Johann Pachelbel, born in Erfurt, Wilhelm Hieronymus Pachelbel was taught by his father and held various positions as an organist in Nuremberg. In 1719 he finally took over the position of organist at the Sebalduskirche from his father’s immediate successor, Johannes Sigismund Richter.

Vocal and Instrumental Music

Very little of Pachelbel’s vocal music survives. Various keyboard compositions were published while others remained in manuscript, the earlier largely in the style of his father and the later representing a transitional style, without the complexity of his near contemporary Johann Sebastian Bach.
