Grzegorz Gerwazy Gorczycki (ca. 1665 to 1667 – 30 April 1734) was a Polish Baroque composer. Born in Rossberg (Rozbark) near Beuthen (Bytom) in Silesia around 1665, little is known of his early life. Similarly little is known about his musical education; however, it is known that he attended the University of Prague, where he gained graduated from the department of Liberal Arts and Philosophy, and then attended the University of Vienna where he gained a licentiate in Theology. He arrived in Kraków in 1689 or 1690, where he then attended the Catholic Seminary there.

He was ordained on 22 March 1692. Immediately after his ordination, he was appointed to the academy for missionary priests in Chełmno in Pomerania, where he lectured in rhetoric and poetry, as well as conducting the local orchestra. After two years, he returned to Kraków, where he was appointed Curate of the cathedral, and performed in the cathedral orchestra. He was appointed conductor on January 10, 1698, and remained in this position for the rest of his life, dying on April 30, 1734. The earliest recorded information on any of Gorczycki's works comes from 1694, but he must have written a substantial amount before 1698 in order to be appointed Kapellmeister. Unfortunately none of his compositions were ever published during his lifetime, so most of them have been lost; 39 works can however be safely attributed to him.
