Gregor Aichinger (1565 - 1628)

One of the leading composers of his time in southern Germany, Gregor Aichinger was associated with the Fugger banking family in Augsburg, where he became organist both to the Fuggers and at the church of St Ulrich. He was a pupil of Giovanni Gabrieli in Venice, and later spent time in Rome, where he was probably ordained priest. In Augsburg he continued his association with the Fuggers and with Augsburg Cathedral, through which he held various benefices.

Sacred Music

Aichinger’s Sacrae cantiones, published in Venice in 1590, reflect the influence of Gabrieli. Other works show the influence of the Roman canzonetta, notably the Ghirlanda di canzonette spirituali (‘Garland of Spiritual Songs’) of 1603. His importance lies in part in his introduction of contemporary Italian concertato styles, with basso continuo, into Germany.
