Johann Balthasar Kehl (Composer)

Born: August 24, 1725
Died: April 7, 1778

The German composer, Johann Balthasar Kehl, was organist in Erlangen and Bayreuth. In the years 1759-1764 he printed four books with chorale arrangements (they contain in each case 1 preludes and 14 chorale arrangements). Stylistically Kehl's compositions are connected with the feeling and style of the Protestant chorales. However, they still exhibit also some Baroque style elements.

Orchestral Works:
Concerto für Hammerklavier, Streicher, 2 Hörner, Pauke und B.c., C-Dur

Organ Works:
Selection from: ‘Einige variirende Choräle’,
Präludium zu Herr Gott, dich loben alle wir (Ps.134 / Lb 150/250/472)
Freu dich sehr, o meine Seele (Ps. 42)
Präludium zu einem Lob- und Dankliede
Nun freut euch lieben Christen gmein (Lb 279)
Erschienen ist der herrlichen Tag (Lb 200/209)
Es ist das Heil uns kommen her (Lb 344)
