By 1496, Maximilian sent part of his imperial chapel to Vienna, formally establishing there in 1498. Heinrich Isaac (court composer until 1517), his able associate (and successor) from Switzerland, Ludwig Senfl, and the brilliant organist Paul Hofhaimer all joined to make this a great musical center. Surrounding Josquin's Missa Di dadi are settings mostly for Christmastide by these composers in Maximilian's circle.

La mi sol la.
Introit Puer natus est.
