Hans Leenders, director
Marcus Teller, son of Hendrick Teller and Cornelia Janssen, was baptized as â€˜marcus henrici teelderâ€™ on 17 December 1682 in St. Nicholas in Maastricht. The family name of Teller also appears in the archives as Tellers, Teelder, Teelers, Telders, or Tellder.
The surviving works of Teller consist of two printed editions and a number of manuscripts. In 1726 the collection Musica sacra stylo plane Italico & Cromatico was published as opus 1 by Joannes Lotter in Augsburg. It was dedicated to the canon Arnold Hyacinthus Wynants, provost of St. Servatius and neighbour of Marcus Tellerâ€™s parents at the Grote Looiersstraat.
Besides the nine motetta brevia pro tempore recorded here, the print contains two missae solemnes for four soloists, four-part choir and instruments.
