The first encompassing catalogue of compositions by the Renaissance composer Ludwig Senfl.


"Der Catalogue Raisonné (CR) bietet insgesamt sehr gute Vorausset-zungen  und  eine  solide  Basis  für  weiterführende  Forschungen zu Ludwig Senfl. Für die allgemeineDarstellungsweise von Werkkatalogen von Kompo-nisten  des  Mittelalters  bzw.  der  frühen  Neuzeit  kann dem CR darüber hinaus eine Vorbildfunktion attestiert  werden." (Christian Schnauß, in: Die Tonkunst, April 2021, Nr. 2, Jg. 15 (2021), p. 219)


Stefan Gasch and Sonja Tröster are editors of the New Senfl Edition and lecturers at the University of Vienna as well as the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.


Until now, scholars have had an inadequate picture of the scope and transmission of the œuvre of Ludwig Senfl (c.1490–1543), one of the most important Renaissance composers of the German-speaking lands.
The current publication presents an extraordinary and exceptionally comprehensive catalogue raisonné for this Renaissance composer.

The Senfl Catalogue serves as an encyclopaedic research tool for further scholarly investigation: it not only presents a lively and coherent picture of Senfl’s œuvre, but also helps to explore the broader musical culture of his time. At the same time, the in-depth presentation and analysis of Senfl’s music provides Early Music performers with new information on repertory that adds to the soundscape of the Renaissance.
