Interesting.  I've always heard his name as Hans Leo Hassler, but when
I looked up 'Johann Hassler' in response to your post, I found that
the Hassler of whom I speak (1564-1612) called 'Hans Johann Leo
Hassler'.  My reference was to Hans Leo.  And Jakob, of whom I
previously had not heard, was apparently his brother.

Hassler wrote a motet, Ad dominum cum tribularer, that is unique in my
mind because of its uncharacteristic use of chromaticism for the
period.  I'm surprised it didn't get him burned at the stake.  It's
stunningly beautiful.
