Wilsing, Daniel Friedrich Eduard
Composer and music teacher of Berlin; born at Horde, Westphalia. He was organist in one of the Protestant Churches at Wessel from 1829 until 1835, when he went to Berlin, where he lived a studious life. His De Profundis won for him great praise from Schumann and the gold medal for Art presented by Friedrich Wilhelm IV. Another of his compositions, an oratorio, Jesus Christus, was produced by his pupil, Arnold Mendelssohn, in Beethoven Hall at Bonn in 1889. He also wrote sonatas and other piano-pieces and a number of songs.
