Robert Führer (2 June 1807 – 28 November 1861), born Robert Jan Nepomuk Führer, was a Czech composer.
**There are no indications for registration, tempo or phrasing in the score so I have made full use of the endless possibilities of the Alfred Führer organ.
Born in Prague, he became the Director of Music at St. Vitus Cathedral at the age of 32. Despite his considerable artistic gifts, he lived beyond his means. In 1845 he was dismissed.
Without a church to call home he wandered through several different towns and villages, but never stayed in any one place for too long. During this period he had to support himself from sales of his church music compositions. Luckily this was successful because his music was well loved.
No other composer's works enjoyed as widespread performance amongst the choirs in South Germany and Austria during the second half of the 19th century.
