Description Nicolaus Zangius (ca. 1568 – 1617) was a musician with a rather restless character, always seeking a more ideal patron. Zangius worked as a Kapellmeister in Iburg, Danzig, at the Liechtenstein court in Moravia and finally in Berlin, between 1602 and 1612 he also held the position of a servant at the Emperor’s court in Prague. The book reflects Zangius’ career and his position or social status in the society of the early seventeenth century. It includes a discussion on his printed (and yet not always published) works. The book deals closely with the life of Charles of Liechtenstein (1569-1627), one of the wealthiest Moravian aristocrats and the governor of Moravia in the years 1604 to 1607. As a part of his court, he established a music ensemble and appointed Nicolaus Zangius as its head.
