Michael Praetorius

One of the most significant German composers of his time, whose Musae Sioniae, a collection of over 1200 settings of Lutheran chorales, is a valuable source for hymnology. A three-volume treatise by Praetorius, Syntagma Musicum, has significant information about the compositional style and instruments of his day. ~ Mary K. Scanlan

Always loved Praetorius, the master of Renaissance dance. Did he compose the melodies or adapt existing folk melodies. Can't tell--bio is still broken.

Where did they find such a crystal-clea r photograph of Michael? A fine example of the works of Camerata Antiqua.

lets give Pandora a break. I recently wrote them and suggested they finish incomplete bios. They also responded to suggestions of not so well known, Irish, Chinese, and Yiddish musicians.

They don't fix it because they don't care lol. If Pandora had any interest in correcting these sort of issues, there would be a relatively easy to find submit comments/sug g e s t i o n s link. But there isn't. Oh well, enjoy the music, and if it really bothers you move on to another streaming service

Pandora obviously does not read the comments, nor does Pandora proof their site.

Ok. it is one year since the first post indicated a correction was needed to replace the current(inco r r e c t ) bio with that of Michael Praetorius. So what's the hold up Pandora? Hello! Anybody out there? Oh well. Thank God for Encylopedia Britannica. We will have look up Herr Praetorius ourselves. Pandora, you will need to uprgrade you presentation quality if you want users to upgrade their memberships to actual paying status. In the meantime I will suffer though the

Pandora: you still don't have it correct as Andrew Parrott is showing up instead of Preatorius!

Pandora: Why is the bio about Heinrich Schütz when the artist page belongs to composer Michael Praetorius? Please replace the incorrect bio with the correct one.
