This composer served at a monastery in Garsten as well as perhaps at a monastery in Weilhenstephan having been admitted towards the Benedictine order. Ertl’s phoning also got him to Styria and finally back again to Garsten. When Ertl dwelled in Garsten he made up music for the choirboys; it really is a few of these vocal compositions that are extant. They range between six to ten voiced configurations where the composer utilized a variance of homophony, dual choir antiphonies, and polyphony. A lot of the compositions had been created with syllabic meters but essential words are presented by using melismas. Ertl was the initial Austrian to include body organ parts — continuo — towards the public which he constructed.
