(1459–1537), Austrian composer and organist. From the late 1470s he served both Duke Sigismund of Tirol and Maximilian I. In 1515, knighted and ennobled, he became the imperial ‘obrister Organist’. His last appointment was as organist at Salzburg Cathedral and to the archbishop of Salzburg. He was recognized as a skilled organist, an expert adviser on organ construction, and a teacher of several future cathedral organists. There are only two liturgical organ compositions (‘Recordare’ and ‘Salve regina’) amongst his surviving works.
