Burck, Joachim a -

KomponistOhneBild.jpg
Joachim a Burck (1546-1610), also known as Joachim von Burgk, actually Joachim Moller, was a German composer. He probably received his musical education in Magdeburg. He completed his studies in 1561 at the University of Wittenberg and in 1563 became cantor at the Latin school and in 1566 organist at the main church St. Blasien in Mühlhausen. He founded in this city the significant music culture connected with the names Johann Rudolph Ahle, Johann Eccard, Johann Georg Ahle and Johann Sebastian Bach. He was also active as a historian and public notary. In 1583 he became a senator and after his death his collected works were published per decree of the town council.



Burck is considered the forerunner of Protestant church music in the 17th century. Besides Latin compositions like motets, odes, officia, hymns and a Passion one must mention his works in German: a St. John's Passion, in which for the first time the German passion text was through-composed, a "Passion auf eine Evangelienharmonie" as well as "Dreyssig Geistliche Lieder auff die Fest durchs Jahr und Deutsche christliche Liedlein". J.S. Bach used his chorale "Es steh´n vor Gottes Throne" in BWV 309.
