Valentin Schumann was an important publisher in Leipzig. (1530s and 1540s) He published, among other things, hymnals with musical notation. He published various editions of the Leipzig hymnal beginning with the first edition with 88 chorales at the time of Pentecost, 1539, right after Leipzig accepted the changes brought by the Reformation. In the later 3rd editions from 1542, Schumann had increased the number of chorales to almost 120.
