One of Bach's most famous works from this time is the cantata "Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit," also known as "Actus Tragicus."After a year in Mühlhausen, Bach won the post of organist at the court of the Duke Wilhelm Ernst in Weimar.

He wrote many church cantatas and some of his best compositions for the organ while working for the duke.

Bach had a beautiful soprano singing voice, which helped him land a place at a school in Lüneburg.

Sometime after his arrival, his voice changed and Bach switched to playing the violin and the harpsichord.

Bach did not help his situation when he disappeared for several months in 1705.

While he only officially received a few weeks' leave from the church, he traveled to Lübeck to hear famed organist Dietrich Buxtehude and extended his stay without informing anyone back in Arnstadt.

But Duke Wilhelm Ernst had no interest in letting Bach go and even imprisoned him for several weeks when he tried to leave.

He also wrote pieces for solo instruments, including some of his finest violin works. for the Latin In Nomine Jesu, or "in the name of Jesus," on his sheet music.At the age of seven, Bach went to school where he received religious instruction and studied Latin and other subjects.His Lutheran faith would influence his later musical works.In 1707, Bach was glad to leave Arnstadt for an organist position at the Church of St. This move, however, did not turn out as well as he had planned.Bach's musical style clashed with the church's pastor.
