About article:
The text presents new discoveries about three members of the Plotz family: Caspar Plotz (ca. 1580–1633), Johann Plotz (1608–1680), and Georg Plotz (1614–1661). All three were involved in music culture, worked as organists in Lutheran churches, and copied and owned music manuscripts. The parish registers from the Lutheran church in Brzeg/Brieg, hitherto not examined by musicologists, have provided new information on the Plotz family, and enabled identification of biographical details. The newly found source testimonies about Caspar Plotz’s life in Brzeg, and the baptism records of his sons, confirmed the relationships between Silesian music culture and that of Spiš and Šariš.
