This Moravian composer served as a court composer for Prince-Bishop Karl of Olomouc (Olmütz) during the last quarter of the 17th century. Vejvanovský studied at the Jesuit College in Opova. Apart form a composers, he was also a music copyist and above all a very good trumpetter. He has therefore written a lot of virtuoso works for trumpet, trombine and cornett. His many mass settings form a step in the evolution from early baroque to more homophonous vocal parts.
