Ernst Friedrich Eduard Richter (1808 – 1879), was a German musical theorist, born at Großschönau, Saxony. He first studied music at Zittau, and afterwards at Leipzig, where he attained so high a reputation that in 1843 he was appointed professor of harmony and counterpoint at the conservatorium of music, then newly founded by Felix Mendelssohn. Up to 1847 he conducted the Singakademie; he was afterwards organist successively of the Peterskirche (1851) and the Neukirche and Nicolaikirche (1862). On the death of Moritz Hauptmann in 1868, he was elected cantor of Thomasschule zu Leipzig, conducting the Thomanerchor, an office he retained until his death. Nowadays he is mostly remembered as author of three books about harmony and counterpoint.

Richter’s opus 20 is a collection of 6 Trio’s, of which 5 are based on a choral melody. The second one of these Trio’s has the choral melody “Wer nur den lieben Gott lässt walten” as it’s main subject. It is a beautiful flowing piece, well worth the effort of practicing
