Johann Gottlob Haase (Bach's Pupil)

Born: c1715 - Profen, about 25 km south of Leipzig, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany
Died: After 1756

Johann Gottlob Haase was a German organist. He attended as "Externus" the Thomasschule in Leipzig from August 1731 to 1735, and enrolled at the University of Leipzig in 1735. He studied with J.S. Bach in Leipzig for over a year at this time and was a member of J.S. Bach’s Collegium musicum. In 1736 he received a good report from J.S. Bach on both his vocal and instrumental capabilities. J.S. Bach wrote a testimonial for him which has not survived, but Haase referred to it in a letter, dated November 18, 1756 (DBok i, No. 72), in pursuit of his application for the post of court organist at Zeitz, left vacant after Johann Ludwig Krebs moved to Altenburg. He had apprantly been living at Zeitz, not far from his native Profen, since at least 1743.
