Michael Franck was a German baker, teacher, poet, and composer. He was born in Schleusingen, and died in Coburg. Franck initially established a career as a baker. Although he was fairly successful, "he became completely impoverished, because of nocturnal thefts and plunders of his house". He moved to Coburg and began teaching, and also wrote hymns and poems. His hymns have been incorporated into compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 26) and Georg Philipp Telemann.
