Christoph Ludwig Fehre (18 January 1718 – 28 October 1772) was a German composer and organist. He was the brother of David Augustin Fehre.
Fehre was born in Zehren. As a child he studied at the Lyceum in Chemnitz and took his first music lessons from his uncle Johann Christian Gerstner (1675–1753). Then from 1727 till 1734 he attended the Anne School in Dresden. In 1742 he made an unsuccessful bid for the post of organist at the Frauenkirche, Dresden. On 26 February 1754 he became a trainee organist of St. Anne's Church, Dresden, then organist from August 1757. On 20 July 1760 the St. Anne's Church was destroyed, and for the next nine years Fehre was organist at interim services in the St. Bartholomew's Church and in the electoral Malersaal on the Ostra-Allee. On 8 October 1769 he was the organist to celebrate the inauguration of the newly built St. Anne's Church. He died, aged 54, in Dresden.
