(1742 - 1815)

Roman Hoffstetter joined the Benedictine monastery at Amorbach, where he served as prior from 1773 to 1778. With the dissolution of the monastery in 1803 he settled in Miltenberg am Main as a priest of the diocese of Würzburg.

Vocal and Instrumental Music

Hoffstetter’s compositions include settings of the Mass and other liturgical works, a reflection of his employment as regens chori in his monastery. With a style modelled on that of Haydn, a group of his string quartets were at one time attributed to that composer. He played the viola and wrote three concertos for the instrument.
