Carl Bohm

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


He certainly was prolific, not only with individualcompositions but collections and albums of original music, such as the BohmAlbum for the Pianoforte. The quality of his melodies is remarkable. They havea familiar quality similar to folk-songs. It’s no wonder they have become sopopular.  

His greatest masterpiece may well be the famous “Calm asthe Night” as it is so well finished and refined. This song comes to us from acollection known simply as Lieder Op. 326. Calm as the Night (Still wie die Nacht) is listed as Number27 in the collection. The song is scored for vocal duet and piano. The lyricsfor Bohm’s Still wie die Nacht areanonymous.


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!
