General Information

Title: Proteleios euchē Qua Chorus musicus bene precatur optimo sponso ornamentis ingenij & virtutis claro Christophoro Hagio, clarissimi viri Consilio, prudentia & virtute praestantis D. Christophori Hagii filio, & castissimae eius sponsae Barbarae Goeblin Wirtzburgensi, Numeris Harmoninicis reddita, ab Andrea Schwartz Franco, Iacobo Meiland Senfftenbergensi, Andrea Schwartz Scoto. Norinbergae, In officina Ioannis Montani & Ulrici Neuberi

Publication date and place: unknown mid-16th century.

Composers: Andreas Schwartz Francus, Jacob Meiland, Andreas Schwartz Scotus

Three works composed for the wedding of Christoph Hagen (probably from Nuremberg) and Barbara Goebel from Würzburg. Proteleios means something that happens before a ceremony.
The source of the facsimile provides "ca. 1550" as date of publication. This cannot be correct, as Jacob Meiland, one of the composers, was only 8 years old at 1550; his date of birth, unequivocally given as 1542, is confirmed by two prints of 1575, which state his age to be 33. Unless we assume that he was as precocious as Mozart, the publication should be dated around 1560 or later.
