Johannes Werlin (II) was a German composer from Oettingen. In 1636 he went to Lindau, where he taught at the grammar school for 40 years. He was highly active there in the field of church music: Riesch reported that Werlin gave almost 1200 pieces of music to the school and the church in 1665. The pieces in Melismata sacra belong more to the realm of the sacred madrigal, whereas those in Psalmodiae novae can be regarded as sacred concertos. There are 22 of the latter, based on well-known Lutheran hymns.
