Philipp Dulichius

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Philipp Dulichius (also Deulich, Deilich, Teilich, Dulich, Dulichs ) (* December 18, 1562 in Chemnitz ; † March 24, July / April 3,  1631 greg. In Stettin ) was a German composer .


Philipp Dulichius was the son of the cloth maker, councilor and multiple mayor Caspar Deulich from Chemnitz. It is only known with certainty that he was enrolled at Leipzig University in 1579 when he was a student . In 1587 he took up a position as cantor at the Princely Pedagogy in Stettin. From 1618 the title of professor is documented. He was responsible for church music in Stettin's Marienkirche , the musical training of high school students and music at the court of the Pomeranian dukes. After 43 years of service, he resigned from office at the end of 1630. The Stettiner Marienkirche, in which he was buried, burned down in 1789 and was not rebuilt.

Philipp Dulichius composed 232 elaborate and beautiful motets , which were distributed throughout Europe during his lifetime, but are now waiting for a revival.
