Christian Janszon Hollander (Composer)

Born: 1510/1516 - ??
Died: 1568/1569 - ??

The composer, Christian Janszon [Janszone] Hollander, was from 1549 to 1557 choirmaster at St. Walburg's, Audenarde. From 1559 to 1564 he was singer in the Imperial Chapel at Vienna under the Emperors Ferdinand I and Maximilian II. In 1564 he moved to the archducal court at Innsbruck. His employers thought highly of his compositions - German songs and motets which show accomplished use of the mature Franco-Flemish polyphonic style.

A large number of motets by him are contained in the collections of the time, and especially in the Thesaurus of Joannelli, 1568, from which Commer has reprinted twenty-five. The only other works of Hollander that appeared in print are:
(1) A collection of German songs, sacred and secular, for 4 to 8 v. (Munich, 1670); (2) Tricinia (Munich, 1673). From the former Commer has reprinted two sacred songs for 6 voices, O Herr durch deinen bittern Tod, Allmächtiger Gott der du all' Ding erhältst, and two secular songs for four voices, Der Wein der Schmeckt, Ach edles Bild.
