Bach, Johann Christoph

(Born; Arnstadt, bap. 8 Dec 1642; Died; Eisenach, bur. 2 April 1703). German composer [13 in Bach family genealogy]. He studied under his father and in 1663 became organist of the Arnstadt castle chapel. In 1665 he was appointed town organist and court organist and harpsichordist at Eisenach, posts he held for the rest of his life inspite of disputes with civic authority. J. S. Bach wrote that he 'was as good at inventing beautiful ideas as he was at expressing words. He composed, as far as current taste allowed, in a galant, cantabile style, unusually full in texture'. His vocal works include motets and vocal concertos, the former in the tradition of the aria and chorale motet, with alternate imitative and chordal writing; he also wrote for keyboard, in a style akin to Pachelbel's.(c)Groves Dictionaries, MacMillan Publishers Limited, UK
