Paul Sartorius (16 November 1569, Nuremberg – 28 February 1609, Innsbruck) was a German composer and organist.[1]

He was born Paul Schneider and at some point adopted a Latinized version of his name (which in German means "tailor").[2] In his youth he traveled to Italy to study.[3] In 1594 he obtained the professional position he held for the rest of his life, namely as organist for the court music of Archduke Maximilian III of Austria.[4] His music shows strong Italian influence.[5]
