a German composer, organist, theorist, and Protestant church musician. In 1671 his first book of arias was published, Neues Zehn Geistlicher Arien; all copies of this work are now lost, though a fragment survives. He, like his father, also became a city councilman in Mühlhausen. In 1680 he was named poet laureate by Emperor Leopold I. Ahle's most well-known theoretical treatise was Johan Georg Ahlens musikalisches Gespräche (1695–1701), published in four volumes. His works, many of which are lost, included sacred and secular choral works, as well as novels which incorporated songs or musical interludes.
