Bach wrote literally thousands of compositions -
ost of them for church use and church choral singing. Back also produced the "Bradenburg" concertos in 1721 which combined French and Italian orchestral styles and organ music. He also produced the "The Well-Tempered Clavier" for the piano, harpsichord and other keyboard instruments.
Along with being a composer, Bach held the position of organist at Arnstadt from 1703-1707, Muhlhausen from 1707-1708, and Weimar from 1708-1717. Bach fathered twenty children. He died on July 28, 1750.
