Daser, Ludwig

Date of birth: c.1526
Date of death: 1589

Ludwig Daser (c.1526-1589) was a German Kapellmeister and composer. He was raised at the Munich court. When he converted to protestantism he lost his post and was forced to leave Munich. This fact is a little in contradiction with the reputation of Munich as a city tolerant to various faiths. Daser went to Stuttgart where he became Kapellmeister for Duke Christoff von W├╝rttemberg in 1572, and stayed in this function throughout the rest of his life. He wrote 22 masses, 24 motets and other sacred works, as well as a Passion.
