(d. 1801), Kapellmeister at Augsburg Cathedral. Schubart calls him ' the best Nuremberg organist and pupil of J. S. Bach. He understood the registers thoroughly, and his writing for the instrument was inspired. His fugues had melodious-flowing subjects and were pleasant to listen to.' He wrote also some church compositions which prove him a master of counterpoint. A few of his compositions, 2 masses, Miserere, Stabat Mater, etc., are enumerated in Q.-L. E. v. d. s.
