For many years Hermann was master in the Latin School in Joachimsthal, and cantor or organist and choirmaster in the church. Toward the end of his life he suffered greatly from gout, and had to resign even his post as cantor a number of years before his death. His hymn tunes were published in:

  1. Erschienen Ist der Herrliche Tag
  2. Hinunter ist der Sonnenschein
  3. So wahr ich leb’, spricht Gott der Herr
  4. Lobt Gott, ihr Christen allzugleich
  5. Wenn mein Stündlein vorhanden ist
  1. Erschienen Ist
  2. Hermann
  3. Nikolaus, Lobt Gott Ihr Christen
  4. O Heilige Dreifaltigkeit
