Jacob Adlung (1699 - 1762) was a German organist, teacher, instrument maker, music historian, and music theorist. He was born in Bindersleben, near Erfurt. He studied philosophy, philology, and theology at the University of Jena from 1723 to 1726, where he studied the organ further with Johann Nikolaus Bach. He returned to Erfurt in 1737 where he succeeded Johann Heinrich Buttstedt as organist of the Prediger church after the former's death, a post he retained for the rest of his life. He was also professor of languages at the Erfurt Gymnasium and a maker of keyboard instruments. And on top of all this, he composed as well. Adlung's prelude to "Herr Christ, der einig Gottes Sohn" is a simple composition with the chorale melody in the left hand, acoompanied by figurations in the right hand. Not a great composition, but pleasant to listen to. And easy to learn, so it can come in handy in this period.
