Mikolaj Zielenski (Composer)

Born: 1560, Warka, Poland

Died: c. 1620

Nationality: Polish

Mikołaj Zieleński was a Polish composer, organist and Kapellmeister to the primate Baranowski, Archbishop of Gniezno.

Neither the date of his birth nor of his death are known; documents from Płock Cathedral state he was from Warka and show him to have been a member of the diocese in 1604 and organist in 1606, and in 1611 he married and was involved in a court case. The March 1611 dedication of his book places him at the Archbishop's court in Łowicz, and that Baranowski hired no replacement suggests he may have survived his patron, who died in 1615.

Zieleński's only known surviving works are contained in two 1611 liturgical cycles of polychoral works, the Offertoria/Communes totius anni.
