Weinmann, Johann


(b Nuremberg, c1477; d Wittenberg, late Nov 1542). German organist and composer. From 1492 he studied at Leipzig University before spending the years 1496–8 as organist at the Heilig-Geist-Kirche in Nuremberg. He then went to Erfurt University. In 1506 he succeeded Adam von Fulda as organist at the Schlosskirche at Wittenberg, and from 1509 he resumed his studies at Wittenberg University, where he was also rector and magister, and where he obtained the doctorate. In 1519 he was appointed organist at the town church, Wittenberg. He apparently converted to Protestantism in 1520 or 1521 while retaining his posts in Wittenberg. When he died Weinmann was praised by the university for his outstanding knowledge of history as well as his superior musical artistry. His only extant work is a four-voice setting of Luther's Vater unser im Himmelreich (RISM 154421, ed. in DDT, xxxiv, 1908, 2/1958). Although Weinmann was the oldest composer in the anthology the composition is rather forward-looking in placing the cantus firmus in the top voice instead of in the tenor.

Weinrauch, Ernestus [Faustinus]


(b Donauwörth, bap. 17 Oct 1730; dZwiefalten, 9 April 1793). German composer. He entered the Benedictine monastery at Zwiefalten in 1748 and served it for more than 30 years as organist and regens chori and also at times as subprior. He composed primarily liturgical music for his monastery, but also stage music for a Schwäbisch Gmünd passion play Die Geisslung as well as one oratorio Kain und Abel (both in D-Tl and the Stadtarchiv, Schwäbisch Gmünd). Although he did not have his works printed, many were disseminated through copies. Several of his manuscripts survive (in D-Bsb, HR, OB and the two above-named libraries). Weinrauch was also a respected teacher, counting among his pupils the composers Konrad Back in Ottobeuren, Conradin Kreutzer and probably also J.L. Schubaur.
