Adopting music as his principal vocation, he became a chamber musician in Bückeburg, a post he held until his death. Although less known as a composer than his brothers, he was a fine musician. A selected edition of his works was ed. by G. Schünemann and sponsored by the Fürstliches Institut für Musikwis-senschaftliche Forschung (1920–22). Schünemann also ed. several oratorios in Denkmaler Deutscher Tonkunst (vol. 56, 1917). G. Walter ed. the cantata Die Amerikanerin (Berlin, 1919), and L.
