Mettenleiter, Johann Georg



Organist, choirmaster and musical composer; born at St. Ulrich, near Ulm, where later he became choirmaster and organist. He is known chiefly on account of his scholarly church compositions of which he published Manuale breve cantionum ac precum and Enchiridion chorale, both with organ accompaniments; and 95th Psalm for six male voices. In manuscript he has left some masses, two Misereres, a Stabat Mater and an Ave Maria for double chorus. His brother has written a biography, entitled Johann Georg Mettenleiter, ein Künstlerbild.
