Johann Ulrich Steigleder (1593-1635) was organist at the collegiate church in Stuttgart from 1617 onwards and became court organist in 1627. His posthumous fame is based principally on his tablature book Ricercar Tabulatura (1624) which he himself published. The ricercares are instrumentally conceived. They contain antiphonal effects and fauxbourdon-like passages which are reminiscent of the English virginalists' style. Steigleder’s tabulature book is an important contribution to the organ music Kunstbücher by Titelouze, Scheidt, Frescobaldi and Correa de Arauxo which appeared around the same time.

This edition also contains three works which have survived under the name Adam Steigleder. The editor Ulrich Siegele is a leading international scholar of the works of the Steigleder family of musicians.
