Sattler, Heinrich



German musician, theorist and composer; born at Quedlinburg. Was an organ pupil of F. W. Liebau and later studied with Hummel at Weimar. Was organist at Blankenburg-in-theHartz from 1838 to 1861, and acted as instructor in a seminary at Oldenburg. He wrote an oratorio, Die Sachsentaufe; masses; motets; psalms; cantatas; and part-songs. Among his cantatas was Triumph des Glaubens.
