The buildings in which Bach lived and worked, on the other hand, have for the most part disappeared. The palace, built by Duke Wilhelm IV in 1650–64 and known as the ‘Wilhelmsburg’ (see Plate 7), was destroyed by ﬁre in 1774, and with it the ducal chapel (the ‘Himmelsburg’; see Plate 9) where Bach’s earliest mature cantatas were heard and where he ofﬁciated at the two-manual organ reconstructed shortly before his arrival by Johann Conrad Weishaupt. Gone, too, is the house where Bach and his growing family lived, until 1713 at least; it stood next to the famous Elephant Hotel in the market-place, but it had already been much altered before it was bombed in February 1945.
Wednesdays and Saturdays being half-holidays. Reckoned in hours (one hour being the length of a lesson; the German word Stunde serves for both) the total of 103 absences recorded for Sebastian during 1694–5 would represent four whole weeks away from school; reckoned in half-days it would indicate longer periods of absence. In either case the ﬁgure perhaps reﬂects the tragic domestic events of that year. Sebastian’s father, already saddened by the early death in 1691 of his second surviving son, Johann Balthasar, and by the death at Arnstadt in 1693 of his much-loved twin brother, Johann Christoph, had to suffer in May 1694 the loss of his wife Elisabetha.
When Barbara Margaretha Bartholomaei (ne´e Keul) entered into matrimony with Ambrosius Bach on 27 November 1694 it was not the ﬁrst time in her thirty-six years that she had married into the Bach family. Her late husband had been deacon at Arnstadt, but before that she had been the wife of Ambrosius’s cousin Johann Gu¨nther (1653– 83), described in the Genealogy as ‘a good musician and a skilful maker of various newly invented instruments’. Possibly Ambrosius’s decision to remarry was strengthened by a sense of family obligation towards Barbara Margaretha and her nine-year-old daughter Christina Maria— and still more towards Gu¨nther’s daughter Catharina Margaretha (born six months after her father’s death, in October 1683), if she was still living.
