Adam Václav Michna z Otradovic (c. 1600 Jindřichův Hradec – 1676, Jindřichův Hradec, Czechia) was a Czech catholic poet, composer, organist and choir leader of early baroque era. About 230 of his compositions from three Czech and two Latin collections are known today. Best known are his 3 hymn cycles, Česká mariánská muzika, Loutna česká and Svatoroční muzika. His verbal pictures are very vivid and aim to influence the senses. He became an inspiration for many Czech compoers and musicians, not only in Baroque period.
