Christian Gotthilf Tag was born as the son of the Beierfelder cantor and school teacher Christian Gottlob Tag (Saxony / Germany) on April 2nd 1735. After his first education in his Erzgebirgian homeland, he attended the Dresden Kreuzschule as a free pupil, where he received musical training as an alumnus and choir singer under Gottfried August Homilius. Although he wanted to enroll at the University of Leipzig as a student of theology, in 1755 he took the cantor position in 1755 in the Saxon town of Hohenstein, to which he remained faithful until 1808. He moved to his daughter in Niederzwönitz, where he died on July 19th 1811 (text quoted by german wikipedia).

In June 1794 “12 kurze und leichte Orgelvorspiele nebst einer Orgelsinfonie für Orgel mit einem Klavier” were published by the Breitkopfischen Musikhandlung, Leipzig.,_1_Orgelsinfonie_(Tag,_Christian_Gotthilf)
In his preface C.G. Tag wrote something remarkable (and funny): „Jene Herren Orgelspieler, denen meine herausgegebene sechs Orgelvorspiele zu schwer, oder für Orgeln mit einem Klavier nicht brauchbar erschienen, werden mit dieser Sammlung ganz zufrieden sein.” (Those gentlemen organ players who found my published six organ preludes too heavy, or not suitable for organs with one manual, will be quite satisfied with this collection.) - Sorry, Ladies, I can’t help it, these preludes are not meant to be played by you ;-)
