The composer is probably Wenzel Mayer SJ, who is listed in the 1720 music inventory of Osek. See Renton, ‘The Musical Culture of Eighteenth-Century Bohemia’ (340; 509). Composers named ‘R[ev.].P[ater]. Mayer’, ‘P. Mayer’, ‘P. Majier’ and ‘Mayer S.J.’ are listed in the Catalogue of the Piarist college, Kosmonosích.
I have discussed how these materials represent one process by which Zelenka acquired and reworked musical items for Dresden: Mus. 2371-E-1b represents the materials received; Mus. 2371-E-1 represents the score prepared by a copyist into which Zelenka made alterations to suit Dresden conditions; Mus. 2371-E-1a represents the parts drawn from that score. See Stockigt, ‘Bach’s Missa BWV 232/1’, 51.
