Christian Theodor Weinlig
Born in Dresden, Weinlig initially studied and then practised law until 1803. He then began musical training with his uncle Christian Ehregott Weinlig, with whom he studied for two years before travelling to Bologna to study with Stanislao Mattei in 1806 (Warrack and Deaville 2001). In Bologna he was a member of the Accademia Filarmonica. From 1814 to 1817 he worked as Cantor of the Kreuzkirche in Dresden. In 1823, he became Cantor of the Thomanerchor in Leipzig, an office he kept until his death (Warrack and Deaville 2001).
