Werner Fabricius (Composer)

Born: April 10, 1633 - Itzehoe (Holstein), Schleswig-Holstein, Germany
Died: January 9, 1679 - Leipzig, Germany

Werner Fabricius [Fabricius is the Latin name assumed by this family which was normally called “Schmidt” = “Schmied” = ‘smith’] was director of music in the church of St Paul at Leipzig. He was the author of several works, the most important being Deliciae Harmonicae (1656). Severus Gastorius (1646-1682) based his chorale melody 'Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan' on one of the melodies by Fabricius contained in “E. C. Homburgs geistlicher Lieder 1. Teil., mit 2stimmigen Melodeien gezieret von W. F., jetziger Zeit M D in der Pauliner-Kirchen zu Leipzig,” published in Jena in 1659. (The initials, “W. F.,” stand for Werner Fabricius.)

Werner Fabricius is the father of the German classical scholar and bibliographer, Johann Albert Fabricius (1668-1736).
