The German composer and organist, Johann Christoph (1642 – 1703) was a German composer a received a thorough musical grounding from his father, Heinrich Bach, and on November 20, 1663 was appointed organist of the Arnstadt castle chapel.

Within the Bach family Johann Christoph was highly respected as a composer (a 'profound' one according to the Ursprung). In J.S. Bach's obituary notice of 1754 he is mentioned expressly as one who 'was as good at inventing beautiful thoughts as he was at expressing words.

This is the last bunch of preludes; they are all fine and written with a lot of craftmanship and articity; it was a joy to play them, but I'm also glad these are the last five.

Thanks to all those, who listened to the complete set for your stamina and perseverance!
