In 1772 he succeeded Johann Gottfried Seyfert as music director of the Protestant church and St Anna's Gymnasium in Augsburg, where he organized the city's amateur concert series from 1779 and wrote a number of oratorios, cantatas and instrumental music. In 1777 Mozart and the Augsburg piano manufacturer Stein visited him at his home for informal music-making." Adolf Layer in Grove Music Online. Bookseller Inventory # 27002
