Grant Colburn (b. 1966) — Chorale Prelude: Christ lag in Todesbanden (1985) for organ
Grant Colburn (b. 1966) is a native of Wisconsin and is active as a harpsichordist, pianist, and composer. In the late 1970s, his interest in the harpsichord was spurred after hearing a recording by Igor Kipnis, with whom he later studied. Colburn’s music generally employs historical styles, and he has written and published numerous compositions for keyboard, ensembles, solo instruments, and the voice. His music has been performed by musicians around the world, and a full concert of his work was presented at the 2007 Boston Early Music Festival. Colburn is a founding member of “Vox Saeculorum,” a composers collective devoted to new music in historical styles. He is also active as a rock musician, performing with the band Strange Ritual.
