Lubeck, Vincent

Lubeck, Vincent

Lubeck, Vincent, eminent German organist, pedagogue, and composer; b. Padingbuttel, Sept. (?) 1654; d. Hamburg, Feb. 9, 1740. He was trained by his father in Flensburg. After serving as organist at Sts. Cosmas and Damian in Stade, near Hamburg (1675–1702), he was organist at the St. Nicolaikirche in Hamburg from 1702 until his death. Lübeck won great renown as a master organist and as a distinguished teacher. His 9 extant organ pieces, consisting mainly of preludes and fugues, reveal him as an outstanding composer of north German music. They have been ed. by K. Beckmann (Wiesbaden, 1973). Among his other works were 3 sacred cantatas and a keyboard suite (1728). See the ed. by G. Harms (Klecken, 1921).

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:
