Senfl, Ludwig
Senfl, Ludwig (c.1486 - c.1543) Show the biography
De profundis EMP1127 £3.75
SATTB Scoring legend Penitential - Psalm ISMN M-2056-1127-9
This beautful and powerful setting of Psalm 129, one of the Penitential Psalms, was recorded by Hofkapelle on CHR77217.
Gelobet seist du Christe EMP0403 £2.00
SATBaB Scoring legend Motet general ISMN M-2056-0403-5
Miserere mei EMP0402 £5.00
SATTB Scoring legend Penitential - Psalm ISMN M-2056-0402-8
Senfl's setting of Psalm 50 (51) belongs perhaps alongside his De profundis as all that remains of a complete set of the Penitential Psalms. This piece, at some 17 minutes, is longer than the other, and will inevitably be compared to Josquin's, with which it shares a number of features. This version is at the original pitch, cleffed SATTB.
Alternative version(s):
EMP0983 A third higher
EMP0985 A tone higher
Miserere mei EMP0983 £6.50
SATTB Scoring legend Penitential - Psalm ISMN M-2056-0983-2
Senfl's setting of Psalm 50 (51) belongs perhaps alongside his De profundis as all that remains of a complete set of the Penitential Psalms. This piece, at some 17 minutes, is longer than the other, and will inevitably be compared to Josquin's, with which it shares a number of features. This version is a third higher than the original pitch, cleffed SATTB. The work is also available a semitone lower than here.
Alternative version(s):
EMP0402 Original pitch
EMP0985 A tone higher
Miserere mei EMP0985 £6.50
SATTB Scoring legend Penitential - Psalm ISMN M-2056-0985-6
Senfl's setting of Psalm 50 (51) belongs perhaps alongside his De profundis as all that remains of a complete set of the Penitential Psalms.

Nisi Dominus EMP0573 £3.50
SATB Scoring legend General Use - Psalm-Motet ISMN M-2056-0573-5
A setting of the whole of Psalm 126. A most effective work, in Senfl's Josquinesque style. The piece appears in the Complete Works with an extra Tenor voice which is not found in my source and which is obviously not original.
O admirabile commercium EMP0579 £2.00
SATBaB Scoring legend Circumcision of Our Lord (Jan. 1) and Christmastide - Antiphon ISMN M-2056-0579-7
Unusually scored, with SATT and F5 clefs, certainly feasible for unaccompanied voices but benefiting from a curtal (Dulcian) on the lowest part.
Quis dabit oculis EMP0322 £2.00
SATB Scoring legend Non-liturgical - Occasional piece (Manuscript edition) ISMN M-2056-0322-9
On the death of Maximilian - a revision of Festa's piece on the death of Anne de Bretagne
Two Antiphons for Easter Vespers EMP0494 £2.00
SATB Scoring legend Easter - Antiphon ISMN M-2056-0494-3
Psalm Antiphon: Alleluia, alleluia and Magnificat Antiphon: Surrexit enim. Believed to be the first moden edition of any of Senfl's great collection of Vesper music.
