|Home | Recorder Music | Composers G||Adam Gumpelzhaimer (1559-1625)|
According to the Internet source given below, Adam Gumpelzhaimer was a German composer. He may have studied briefly with Orlando di Lassus, and also in Italy. Except for a short period in Stuttgart, he was teacher and cantor at the S. Anna Gymnasium in Augsburg from 1581 until his death. In 1595 he published a modernised version of Faber's Compendium Musicae, with examples taken from the music of contemporary German composers, which remained a standard textbook in southern Germany until the late seventeenth century. He composed psalms and sacred songs, and motets which use poly-choral effects.
