Carl Bohm

Carl Bohm, sometimes spelled with a K as in Karl Bohm, was born in 1844 and died in 1920. Bohm was a German composer, pianist, and songwriter. He was famous for writing songs with a light and optimistic atmosphere. Some of his most famous songs are Calm as the Night, Twilight, May Bells, Enfant Cheri, and The Fountain. In addition to his songs, he was a very popular composer of string quartets and string trios. His music was very popular and profitable. His publisher used some of the profits from sales of Bohm’s work to prepare the works of Johannes Brahms for publication.


He certainly was prolific, not only with individual compositions but collections and albums of original music, such as the Bohm Album for the Pianoforte. The quality of his melodies is remarkable. They have a familiar quality similar to folk-songs. It’s no wonder they have become so popular.  

His greatest masterpiece may well be the famous "Calm as the Night" as it is so well finished and refined. This song comes to us from a collection known simply as Lieder Op. 326. Calm as the Night (Still wie die Nacht) is listed as Number 27 in the collection. The song is scored for vocal duet and piano. The lyrics for Bohm’s Still wie die Nacht are anonymous.


Still wie die Nacht

Und tief wie das Meer,

Soll deine Liebe sein!

Wenn du mich liebst,

So wie ich dich,

Will ich dein eigen sein.

Heiß wie der Stahl

Und fest wie der Stein

Soll deine Liebe sein!


As quiet as the night

And deep as the sea,

Your love should be!

If you love me

The same as I love you,

I want to be yours.

As hot as steel

And as firm as a rock,

Your love should be!
