German tenor who made his career first in opera and then in oratorio and lieder recital. He excelled in all these genres, and before 1920 gave classic performances of key roles in modern works, and created lead roles in those of Hans Pfitzner. He was the first husband of Maria Ivogün and was considered by many the ideal Evangelist in Bach's St Matthew Passion. Munich's greatest wartime artistic project was the premiere of Hans Pfitzner's "Palestrina" in 1917. Erb created the title role, with Maria Ivogün as Ighino.
