(Görlitz, 1532–1600, Breslau), a friend of Hans Sachs in Nuremberg, was active as a Meistersinger in his native town and in Breslau. His Gründtlicher Bericht des deudschen Meistergesangs, darinnen begriffen alles, was einem jeden, der sich Tichtens und Singens annemen will, zu wissen von nöten (1571, repr. 1888) gives in homely terms a valuable contemporary account of the Meistergesang. In 1576 he issued an obituary essay on Hans Sachs, Elogium reverendi viri J. Sachs. Revised and enlarged editions of his work of 1574 on theory appeared as Singebuch (1584) and as Gründlicher Bericht der deutschen Reimen (1596; ed. G. Münzer, 1907).
