Description The study is dedicate to a unique document: a list of motets by Nicolaus Zangius (1580-1617) which survived among the inventories of sheet music and musical instruments from the Liechtenstein castle in Prostějov from Jakuna 1607 and 1608. The total of 38 Zangius' motets is set in the context of his remarkable life story and other, less numerous, sacred works created probably in the last ten years of his life which ended for unknown reasons in Olomouc, in the time when Zangius held a rather prestigious and well-paid position of the Kapellmeister for the Elector of Brandenburg in Berlin.
