      (b Landsberg am Lech, Bavaria, 1588; d Seeon, Bavaria, May 29, 1666). German music anthologist, composer and poet . He studied at the monasteries of Diessen and Andechs in Bavaria. In 1609 he became a novice at the Benedictine monastery at Seeon. In 1625 he was appointed prior there and in 1634 choirmaster. The 17th century was a period of particularly rich musical activity in Bavarian monasteries, and Werlin was one of many monks appointed to compose and compile music for use in individual cloisters.

It is the most comprehensive collection of melodies of the Baroque era and important for its poems too....
