Jan Josef Ignác Brentner (November 3, 1689, Dobřany – June 28, 1742, Dobřany) was Czech composer of baroque era. Jan Josef Ignác Brentner was born in the family of mayor of small town Dobřany in Western Bohemia. What we know about him comes mostly from time he spent in Prague, from 1717 to about 1720, where he published at least three major volumes of music. Brentner’s opus 1 is a collection of 12 sacred arias for voice, strings, and continuo, Harmonica duodecatometria ecclesiastica seu (1717), popular enough to demand a second printing in the 1720s. In addition, Brentner published a collection of six offertories for chorus, strings, and continuo entitled Offertoria solenniora (1717) as his opus 2 and a collection of six church sonatas, Horae pomeridianae seu Concertus cammerales (1720) as his opus 4. If Brentner published an “opus 3,” it has never been accounted for. Brentner’s patron was Raymond Wilfert, abbot of the Premonstratensian (Nobertine) monastery in Teplá, located in Bohemia but administrated out of Austria. Scholars agree that most of Brentner’s music was first performed in Tepla under Wilfert’s direction, excepting his funeral motets, which were written specifically for the Brotherhood of St. Nicholas Church in Prague.
