Adam of Wągrowiec
He was born in Margonin. He was famous during his life, and was invited to inspect a new organ in Gniezno cathedral on 17 March 1620. Over twenty of his compositions for organ were found in the Samogitian tablature (ca. 1618) in Lithuania. Adam was the first to use a separate third staff for the organ pedalboard notation.
All of Adam's pieces were recorded by Rostislaw Wygranienko in 2006.
