Josef Seiling (1851-1924) published church music in Regensburg and Munich from 1881 to 1894. The catalog included works by Caspar Ett, Joseph Hanisch, Friedrich Koenen, Carl Santner, Ferdinand Schaller, and Franz Xaver Witt. The most distinguished work was Joseph Rheinberger's Stabat Mater Op.138 (1885)(see Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1885), p.14). The firm had the title Hoflieferant S[einer] K[öniglichen] Hoh[eit] d[es] Prinzen Ludwig Ferdinand v[on] Bayern and Hofmusikalienverleger.

Schwann of Düsseldorf bought the firm in 1894, but a retail shop continued in Munich.
