Augustin Uhlig first arrived in Saxony on 17 June 1719 from Sonnenberg in Bohemia (‘ex monte Solis in Boemia’). After serving in Leipzig’s Jesuit chapel as sacristan and organist, he left in October 1722 to become organist to the Kapellknaben ensemble of Dresden’s Catholic court church. (Stockigt, ‘The students would not calm down’: Leipzig’s Catholic chapel and sectarian discord, March 1723’, forthcoming). Although Uhlig was formally appointed to the Hofkapelle as a violinist in 1732, on at least two occasions he is recorded as playing organ with this royal ensemble (1733 for a Te Deum performance at the Erbhuldigung ceremony for Friedrich August II in Bautzen ; 1739 at the Kirchgang of Maria Josepha held at Hubertusburg). It is likely that at some stage Uhlig was a composition student of Zelenka.
A now-missing Salve Regina setting by ‘Ulich’ was listed by Zelenka into his Inventarium (40/10): Salve à Sopr. Solo. Violino e Traversa.
In the later ‘Catalogo della Musica di Chiesa ...’ (c1784) score and parts are listed for ‘Sub tuum praesidium No 1’ by Ulich (Uhlig: III/U/6/7). The scoring is given as: ‘à 4 voci co’ VVni. Oboi, Viola ed Org.’
