Biography By the German (Latin) poet, translator and composer Paulus Melissus (to whom Philippe de Monte dedicated a madrigal) Meiland was compared with Orlando di Lasso: "if Lasso had passed away, Meiland could be regarded his heir" (in a poem in Meiland's collection Sacrae aliquot cantiones). Unfortunately he died very young.
