Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach held the most important and influential church musician’s post in Hamburg, with responsibilities comparable to those of his father at the Church of St. Thomas in Leipzig. He wrote his Hamburger Bürgerkapitänsmusik in 1780 for the annual festive gathering of the captains of Hamburg’s civic guard. Trumpets and timpani and allegorical figures including virtues and vices are employed to contrast war and peace.
