Following the success of their CD of music by Thomas Tomkins (Gramphone Record of the Month, February 2008), Sidney Choir now explores the music of early 16th-century Bavaria. Ludwig Senfl (1486-1543) was a leading composer in Europe during the Reformation and a favourite musician of Martin Luther. He was much travelled and was for a time under the employ of Emperor Maximilian I. This recording features Senfl's church and vernacular music, with the cornett and sackbut ensemble QuintEssential, and gothic harpist Andrew Lawrence-King. The recording itself took place in the Bavarian town of Regensburg in the cloistered monastery of St Emmeram during the choir's recent summer tour.

While the CD is available in all good record shops and on the Internet, purchase from the College will help support music and the choir! Thanks for your support.
