Christoph Peter

1626 - 1669 Person Name: C. Peter, 1626-69 Meter: Composer of "CHRISTOPHER " in The Methodist Hymn-Book with Tunes Born: 1626 - Weida, Vogtland, Thuringia, Germany Died: December 4, 1669 - Guben Christoph Peter [Petraeus] was a German composer and music editor. His first appointment was as schoolmaster and Kantor at Grossenhain, Saxony. He moved in 1655 to Guben, where he was Kantor until his death. He worked closely there with the poet and civic official Johann Franck. 40 melodies in the latter’s Geistliches Sion (1672), the first part of his Teutsche Gedichte, are by Peter, and he referred to Peter’s skills in the second part, Irdischer Helicon (1674). Peter’s Andachts-Zymbeln is an anthology of chorales by various composers which also contains preliminary instructional matter, a letter of 1524 from Martin Luther to Spalatin, and testimonials to Peter from Franck and others. It may well be significant that he inscribed it to the mayor and corporation of Guben in the year in which he arrived at Guben and that he received rights of citizenship there early the following year. Precationis thuribulum (RISM 16691) consists of masses by Saxon composers based on familiar chorales and set for various combinations of voices and instruments with continuo. The Geistliche Arien includes settings of poems by, among others, Johann Franck, Johann Rist and Paul Gerhardt, and Peter explained that they are for solo voice (with instruments) ‘so that the words can be better understood’. --Bach Cantatas Website

JOHN" in The Methodist Hymn-Book with Tunes Cecil, Richard, M.A., born in London, Nov. 8, 1748, and educated at Queen's Coll., Oxford. Ordained deacon in 1776, and priest in 1777. He became the Vicar of two churches near Lewes shortly after; chaplain of St. John's Chapel, Bedford Row, London, 1780; and Vicar of Chobham and Bisley, 1800. He died in 1810. His poem:— Cease here longer to detain me. Desiring Heaven. In 9 stanzas of 4 lines, is supposed to be addressed by a dying infant to his mother. It was written for his wife on the death of a child “only one month old, being removed at daybreak, whose countenance at the time of departure was most heavenly." It was first published in Mrs. Cecil's Memoir of him, prefixed to his Remains, 1811, and is headed “Let me go, for the day breaketh." In the American hymn-books it is usually abbreviated, as in the Plymouth Collection, 1855, and others. [William T. Brooke] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
