Johannes Weyrauch (1897–1977) studied music at the conservatory in Leipzig under S. Karg-Elert and S. Krehl. His
first compositions were still written in late romantic style.
He then came into contact with the German Youth Movement of the 1920s, whose striving for a musical Renaissance
echoed his efforts to find a “new essence” in music. He began employing clear diction on a tonal basis, refraining
from bizarre melodies, harmonic stimulation and fascinating rhythms.
Slowly but surely, sacred music became the main focus of his work. His initial large organ works took a back seat as
Weyrauch was appointed to church office and consequently had to devote his time to vocal music. In addition to
numerous smaller compositions to be performed during services, he wrote several vocal masses, the Passion of St.
John, cantatas, and motets.
Weyrauch composed seven partitas along the church year.
