Delphin Strungk (or Strunck) (1600 or 1601 – 1694) was a German composer and organist.

Nothing is known about Strungk's early years. The first that is known of him is in 1631, when he became organist of the Marienkirche in Wolfenbüttel. In 1634 he became courtorganist in Celle and subsequently, in 1637, he became organist at the Marienkirche in Braunschweig. He remained till his death in Braunschweig. He was friends with Heinrich Schütz. His son, Nicolaus Adam Strungk, also became a composer.

Two chorale preludes of Strungk were copied by Johann Gottfried Walther and can be found in manuscript 22541 III, owned by the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.
