Heinrich Bach [3/62] (Musician)

Born: ? - Arnstadt, Thuringia, Germany
Died: buried May 27, 1635 - ?

Heinrich Bach [3/62], son of Caspar Bach [3/56], is listed in the death register as the blind son of Caspar, and is thus probably the 'blind Jonas' mentioned in the Ursprung. He was musically educated in Italy and may have received the nickname (an allusion to the biblical figure) as a result of his adventures.
