BERNARD, surnamed il tedesco, 'the German,' is said to have been organist at the church of St. Mark at Venice in the last half of the 15th century, and to have invented organ pedals. The catalogue of the organists of St. Mark—given in von Winterfeld's 'Gabrieli'—contains the name of 'Bernardo di Stefanino Murer,' as having held the post from April 15, 1445, to Sept. 22, 1459.
