Christoph Gottlieb Fröber (Composer, Bach’s Pupil)

Born: August 27, 1704 Langhennersdorf, Erzgebirge (between Saxony and Bohemia), Germany
Died: May 14, 1759

Christoph Gottlieb Pröber was a German Kantor and composer. He studied at Leipzig University from 1726 to 1731, and during that time was a pupil of J.S. Bach. On Good Friday 1729 a Passion setting by him was performed in the Neukirche in Leipzig, but his application for the vacant organist's post there was unsuccessful the following month. In 1731 he was appointed Kantor at Delitzsch, where he seems to have spent the rest of his days.
