Johann Rosenmüller & Bach

OT: Baroque (but happy?)

Ed Myskowski wrote (December 19, 2008:
On the FM airwaves tonight, behind dinner, I heard a work (suite, I believe) by Johann Rosenmüller (1619-1684), a composer I was not familiar with. So unfamiliar, I had to phone the station (they had already lost track of his name), then search the available Kings Noyes CDs. Bingo. A quick search in the BCW archives: no fooling those guys, there he is.

An additional item of interest (to me), from Grove Concise Encyclpedia:
<Finally [after 1682] he returned to Germany as court Kappelmeister at Wolffenbuttel. A prolific composer, he was important in transmitting Italian styles to Germany, where his music was especially popular.> [end quote]

Bach and Rosenmüller, the Italian source?

Thérèse Hanquet wrote (December 22, 2008):
[To Ed Myskowski] I thought of your comment about Rosenmüller when viewing Aryeh's post about Bach and other composers.

It reminded me that one of the last cantatas we performed (BWV 27) includes a chorus by Rosenmüller:
"Welt, ade! ich bin dein müde"

This would indicate that Bach appreciated his work...
