Johann Heinrich Buttstett (Composer)

Born: Apr. 25, 1666 - Bindersleben, near Erfurt, Thuringia, Germany
Died: December 1, 1727 - Erfurt, Thuringia, Germany

The German composer, Johann Heinrich Buttstett [Buttstädt, Buttstedt], was a pupil of Johann Pachelbel, organist at two churches at Erfurt from 1684, and at the cathedral from 1691. His controversy with Johann Mattheson about the solmisation which he championed, brought him into public notice, though it was also a source of much annoyance to him. He wrote: Ut re mi fa sol la tota musica..., 2 vols. (1717); Musikalische Klavierkunst..., preface, preludes, fugues, etc. (1716); 4 masses (1720), and a canzonet, as well as a number of organ pieces in Manuscript.
