Johann Martin Rubert

Johann Martin Rubert (also Rubbert or Rupert, c. 1614–1677) was born in Nuremberg.[1] In 1640 he became organist at the Nikolaikirche at Stralsund. He was a composer of part-songs, violin duets, and cantatas. He was among the first composers to place non-dance movements at the head of what were considered dance suites.[2]
