Franz Lachner , 1808/04/2 (Rain am Lech, Swabia)‒1890/01/20 (Munich). German composer and conductor. In 1834, he became Kapellmeister at Mannheim. Later, he was Kapellmeister of the city of Munich (1852-1864). Although forgotten today, he was a well-known composer in his day, writing operas, oratorios, symphonies, chamber music, and several organ sonatas.

Siehe, lobet den Herrn, alle Knechte des Herrn, die ihr stehet des Nachts im Hause des Herrn!
Hebet eure Hände auf im Heiligtum und lobet den Herrn!
Der Herr segne dich aus Zion, der Himmel und Erde gemacht hat!
