Ahle began studying theology at the University of Erfurt in 1645. In 1649, he accepted an organist position in St. Blasius Church in Mühlhausen. He later served on the town council there, and became mayor in 1661.
His son, Johann Georg Ahle, was also a hymnist, and poet laureate to Emperor Leopold I.
Ahle composed both voice and instrumental works, including about 60 organ pieces.
If you know where to get a good picture of Ahle (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
