NOTE: All of the music on this program is by the great Swiss composer Ludwig Senfl (c.1486-1542/3).

He went from being a choirboy in the chapel  of Emperor Maximilian I in Innsbruck to chief court composer; after the emperor's death he wound up at the court of Duke Albrecht of Bavaria. The performances are by the ensemble Fretwork joined by tenor Charles Daniels, and are on the Harmonia Mundi label: CD # HMU 907334.
