Löhner, Johann

Löhner, Johann, German organist, tenor, and composer; b. Nuremberg (baptized), Nov. 21,1645; d. there, April 2, 1705. After the death of his parents, he was adopted by his brother-in-law, G.C. Wecker, who made it possible for him to study music. He was active in Nuremberg as an organist and tenor in various churches, where he was made organist of the Spitalkirche in 1682 and then of St. Lorenz in 1694. He composed over 300 songs for devotional use in the home, the most important of which are found in his collection Auserlesene Kirch-und Tafel-Musik for Voice, 2 Violins, and Basso Continuo (Nuremberg, 1682). Löhner also composed 3 operas, but only 2 collections of arias are extant.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
