Johann Christian Köpping (Bach's Pupil)

Born: 1704 - Groß, Bothen, about 30 km south-east of Leipzig, Saxony, Germany
Died: 1772

Johann Christian Köpping was a German curator. He was a Thomaner from 1718 to 1726, studied privately with J.S. Bach in Leipzig between 1723 and 1726, and served as curator at the Thomasschule. Like several of J.S. Bach's other pupils, he acted also as copyist for J.S. Bach from 1723-1724 and occasionaly until the end of 1726. It is to Köpping that we owe the only known score of J.S. Bach's Cantata O heilges Geist und Wasserbad, BWV 165 (1724).
