Johann Crüger (1598-1662)

Crüger began studying theology in Wittenberg in 1620. In 1622, he became organist of the Nikolaikirche (St. Nikolai Church) in Berlin. He was a friend of Paul Gerhardt, and wrote melodies for many hymns by Gerhardt and others. Crüger composed sacred works for choral and instrumental performances, and was also a musicologist and wrote about the theory and practice of music. In 1640, Crüger edited a hymnal, titled (beginning with the 1647 edition) Praxis Pietatis Melica. His other works include:

  • Synopsis musica, 1630
  • Musicae practicae praecepta (Rules for Practicing Music), 1660

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
