N. Madlseder
Nonnosus Madlseder (20/06/1730 - 03/04/1797), a German composer, born in Meran, Bavaria. His wish, expressed in the preface of his opus III published in Augsburg in 1768, a collection of fi ve Miserere and one Stabat Mater, that “everything that fl owed from my howsoever un- industrious pen for the sake of God may not be forgotten nor lost” is being met by this CD with premiere performances given in 1997 on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of his death. Madlseder was born on 20 June 1730 in Meran. He attended the secondary school in Hall and continued his studies at the Augustinian convent in Polling near Weilheim (Bavaria) and the secondary school of the Benedictines in Freising. In 1749 he entered the Benedictine monastery in Andechs as a novice. There, as he recounts in the printed edition of his opus I, he had the privilege of being taught by the highly esteemed music teacher P. Gregor Schreyer (1719-1767), whose course was based on the principles of counterpoint of Johann Joseph Fux, the director of the Viennese court music ensemble. After the death of his teacher, Madlseder succeeded him as the choirmaster (who conducts the multi-part voices and orchestra) and music teacher of Andechs Monastery, thus continuing to stay in Bavaria. Madlseder seems to have visited Stams Monastery in 1768; on 22 October Abbot Vigilius Kranicher’s invoice book lists: “H. Madlseder for 1 mass 4 fl . 12. kr.” The mass in question is the great Mass in A Minor preserved in the monastery’s music archive along with his Salve Regina and his Te Deum. Madlseder died on 3 April 1797 in Andechs, where he had been the sub-prior for the last years of his life. In published documentary sources he is lauded as a famous music theorist and one of the first contrapuntists of his age.
