Helmut Kickton

Helmut Kickton (born 28 June 1956 in Cologne,[1] West Germany) is a German church musician, publisher and multi-instrumentalist.

Kickton studied church music at the Robert Schumann Hochschule in Düsseldorf with Hans-Dieter Möller and Hartmut Schmidt. In 1986 he passed his examination (A) with distinction for improvisation and music history.[2] The following years he learned to play most common instruments. He regularly performs on the organ, recorder,[3] violin,[4] viola,[5] cello,[6] double bass,[7] euphonium, guitar [8] and kettledrums.

Since 1987 he has been cantor of the diakonie church in Bad Kreuznach. Together with the kreuznacher-diakonie-kantorei he developed the model of the Integrative Kantorei, which unites voices and instruments.[9] Inspired by historical sources, in 2000 he introduced the layout with the choir in front of the orchestra.

In 2002 [10] he founded the kantoreiarchiv of free digital sheet music.[11] He published more than 15000 files[12] (PDF) for choir, orchestra, brass band, recorder and organ.
