Eccard was a chorister in the Kapelle of the Weimar court from 1567 until it was disbanded in 1571. He then went to Munich to sing in the Bavarian Hofkapelle, where he also studied with Lassus. He served in Augsburg and in 1579 at the Hofkappelle of Margrave Georg Friedrich of Brandenburg-Ansbach, later becoming vice-Kapellmeister. He was appointed Kapellmeister in his own right on the accession of Joachim Friedrich as Elector in 1604.
