c. 1486-1544

The German composer, Balthasar Resinarius, is possibly, but not certainly, identified with Balthasar Harzer or Hartzer. He took holy orders and became Bishop of Laipa in Bohemia, about 1543. He had been a chorister under Isaac in Maximilian I's court chapel. He became a Catholic priest in the service of Hans von Salhausen, but was an early convert to Lutheranism and an important member of the first generation of Protestant composers.
