Wolfram Menschick (1937–2010) — Toccata for Organ (2000)
German composer Wolfram Menschick (1937–2010) was born in Pielehofen and educated in Regensburg, Straubing, and Munich. He studied composition with Harald Genzmer and Franz Lehrndorfer. Menschick held church positions first in Regensburg and Amberg; from 1969 until his retirement in 2002, he was the diocesan director of music and director of music at the cathedral in Eichstätt. Menschick was also active as both an organ and bell consultant. He designed numerous organs throughout the diocese of Eichstätt, built largely to his neo-baroque ideals. His largest instrument is the 1975 Sandtner (64/IV/P) instrument in the cathedral in Eichstätt. Menschick was also a noted expert on bells and was an active memory of the advisory committee for the German Bell Society. Menschick was a prolific composer of primarily choral music for the church, including more than 20 mass settings, numerous choral works, several oratorios, and a small body of organ music.
