Corner, David G.

DAVID GREGOR CORNER (1585-1648) was educated at Prague (MA, 1609), Graz and Vienna (1614). He served as a Roman Catholic parish priest and then entered the Göttweig Monastery (1631). He became rector of the University of Vienna, which also awarded him the ThD (1624). Corner compiled the Gross Catolisch Gesangbuch (Nürnberg, 1625 and later editions) and Geistliche Nachtigal (1631), collections of hymns to Mary which included tunes which may have been gathered folk melodies.
