Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
In December 1784, Mozart becomes an "apprentice" in the Masonic lodge "Zur Wohltätigkeit". In the lodge "Zur Wahren Eintracht" he becomes a "visiting brother". After a month, he becomes a "journeyman". His "Masonic compositions" ("Maurerfreunde" K471, "Gesellenreise" K468, the cantata fragment "Dir, Seele des Weltalls" K429 and the "Maurische Trauermusik") are his contributions to certain Masonic celebrations. From January 1786 on, Mozart is a member of the lodge "Zur Neugekrönten Hoffnung" (later called "Gekrönte Hoffnung").
