Composer: Quehl, Hieronymus Florentinus
Sample Producer: OrganArt Media
Sample Set: 1766 Riepp Heilig-Geist Organ, Ottobeuren, Germany
Software: Hauptwerk VI
Genre: Baroque
Small and very beautiful choral prelude by this fine and seldomly heard composer.

Played on the coupled flutes 4' of the Hauptwerk and Positiv.

Quehl was born in Zella, Germany, in 1694. He was a gifted musician who by the age of ten was performing in Hamburg, Amsterdam, Leyden and The Hague.

His teacher was Kapellmeister Christian Friedrich Witt in Gotha. By the age of twenty Quehl was working as the organist at St. Marien Cathedral in Suhl. His marriage in 1718 resulted in eight children, six of whom did not survive infancy. Johann Sebastian Bach, the Kapellmeister at the Court in Köthen at the time, was godfather to his third son. In 1730, Quehl was appointed organist and cantor at St. Nicolai in Marktbreit am Main.

From 1732 to 1733, he taught organ and composition to Johann Peter Kellner. Kellner wrote,
"In the neighborhood... there was still one man who could boast that he was an excellent musician and an especially good composer. How I looked for this man. It was the organist Quehl in Suhl. His skill and other musical abilities impressed me, that I would also be able to try. The man promised to teach me and it was here my foundations of composition were made."
