- Detailed biography: None given
A mysterious composer, lived circa or before 1838, maybe in XVIII,or even XVII century.
One (XIX century) source places by his name date 1680 with a cross (died 1680, since born 1680 would be "*1680"): Sammlung von drei- und vierstimmigen Volksgesängen. But it's rather doubtful.
Only few works by him are known. Not a single trace of information about him has survived already by 1850s. Not a single dictionary of musicians old or new mentions his name. Some critics doubt that such a composer existed at all and note that two of his works might be identical to Jesu, Salvator Mundi and Parce Domine by Bartolomeo Cordans.
copyright note of C.A.Garabedian's adaptation of his work Ave Regina (1950)
Catalog of Copyright Entries: Third series, 1950 states his name was Martin Joseph Menegali, though its very strange to see an italian with such a name, or else he wasn't italian
In this case, there is quite a suspicion he is the same as Martin-Joseph Mengal, an acquaintance of Meyerbeer.
- The use of Selbstverlag der Komp. means, unless one's reasoning is poor, that the composer himself published the work in the 1840s or so, and so was a 19th century composer- ES
