Like her grandfather Maximilian I, who employed Isaac and Senfl, Mary Queen of Hungary brilliantly employed the Court composer Thomas Stoltzer to set Luther’s new 1524 Hebrew-German Psalm translations to pioneering 6/7vv. polyphony. Senfl arranged Josquin’s ‘Ave Maria’ to 6vv. These and other of their motets and lied are featured by RenChorNY led by Richard Porterfield.
