Meineke (1782-1850) is referred to by several given names including C., Charles, Christopher, Christoph, and Karl. Meineke apparently left Germany in 1810 and, after spending some time in England, moved to the United States, settling in Baltimore, Maryland, by 1822. He was organist at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Baltimore in 1836, likely serving in this position for some eight years.

Meineke published several works including "Music for the Church: Containing Sixty-two Psalm and Hymn Tunes in Four Parts: Together with Chants, Doxologies and Responses for Morning and Evening Prayer, and Holy Communion: Composed for the Use of the Choir of St. Paul's Church, Baltimore" (Baltimore, 1844). He composed the music for Glory Be to the Father and to the Son (MEINEKE).
