Bornefeld, Helmut - Cheaper by the Dozen 12 Harmless Pieces for Flute & Piano (Universal)
Helmut Bornefeld was a German organist and composer. He studied organ, piano, and composition at the Hochschule für Musik in Stuttgart from 1924 to 1931. Until 1936 he taught music in Esslingen and conducted the Esslinger Chamber Choir. To avoid the restrictions imposed on musicians and composers by the Hitler regime he turned to sacred music and passed the 'A' examination for church music in 1937. He became Kanor (organist and choirmaster) in Heidenheim. However, he was soon called up to participate in World War II. For six long years he had to fight in the armed forces. After the war, he resumed his activities in Heidenheim and was appointed 'Kirchenmusikdirektor' in 1951. His duties also comprised responsibility for organ design and maintenance throughout the region. In 1976 he was confered the title of a 'Professor'. With Siegfried Reda, he organized the Heidenheim Arbeitstage für Neue Kirchenmusik in 1946, and remained actively engaged in its activities until 1960.
