After the death of his father in he continued his education at the Lateinschule in Goldbach until , when he moved to the Gymnasium at Gotha. In he matriculated at the University of Jena.
By he was in Hamburg, where, by , three of his children had been baptized. Very little is known regarding his employment, musical or otherwise, during these years, but it was here that he seems first to have been exposed to French musical style in the works of Kusser, a pupil of Lully, who directed many French and Italian works at the opera. In he sought to augment his income by seeking a further position as organist at the Marienkirche, instead of which he was granted an increase in salary.

The Prelude and Fugue in C major, after the opening flourish, offers an extended passage for the pedals, followed by Italian cori spezzati statements.
This new form generally presents the cantus firmus, on which the work is based, in its original form, and most often in the soprano voice. Such diverse works demand highly colourful and contrasting registers of the organ, to be heard independently, or in duo.
The Prelude in F major is modelled on the form of the French overture of Lully, with a stately introduction in dotted rhythm leading to a fugal section also in dotted rhythms. The second versus offers a lower running accompaniment figure, against which the chorale melody appears in an upper part, followed by a third with the varied melody over a largely chordal accompaniment, a fourth with elements of canonic imitation between the upper parts, a fifth with a running upper part and a final sixth versus in which parts enter in quasi-fugal imitation.
The prelude opens with a passage for pedals alone and is followed by a short fugal section. Chopin's set served as a model for other collections of 24 or 25 piano preludes in the major and minor keys,  including those by Charles-Valentin Alkan Op.
