He is considered by many to be the greatest composer who ever lived. In addition to being tremendously gifted, Bach was a diligent student who studied and practiced often. Bach lived and composed during the Baroque period (1600-1750). The music of the Baroque period used harmonic structures uniquely, through the development of vertical chords. Frequently, the music from this period features a simple melody, supported by a fancy accompaniment with a moving bass line. The Baroque period also saw the development of new musical forms, such as the cantata. A cantata is a musical work which consists of multiple movements for singers and instrumentalists. “May God Bless You (Der Herr segne euch)” is a movement from Bach’s Cantata No. 196-Der Herr denket an uns. This particular work was written in 1707 or 1708 in honor of a wedding in Bach's family.
