Johann Pachelbel may or may not have been the teacher of Andreas Armsdorf. Fact this that both composed a chorale prelude on the melody of “Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern” that show some striking similarities. Both have the melody in the pedals, accompanied in rapid flowing figures in the hands. It’s very likely Armsdorf knew Pachelbel’s piece and modelled his own piece after it. Armsdorf’s piece is the more joyous one of the two, but Pachelbel’s piece is perhaps the more refined ons.
