Adolf-Kirchl-Gasse was named in 1959 after the elementary school teacher, choirmaster and composer Adolf Kirchl (16 June 1858 – 21 October 1936).

In addition to his activity as a primary school teacher, he also studied music theory and composition theory. From 1891 to 1916 Kirchl was choirmaster of the (Viennese) Schubertbund, as well as from 1893 to 1919 of the Niederösterreichischer Sängerbund and from 1901 to 1907 conductor of the Wiener Konzertverein. After a stay in Zwettl from 1915 to 1923 he was then choirmaster of the Vienna Sängerbund.

Adolf Kirchl specialized in choral music in his compositions. He created about 200 male and 50 female choirs, as well as numerous works for mixed choir. In addition, he published song books for the elementary and secondary school.
