Music at the Court of Maximilian

Although the German Renaissance was not the resplendent one of Italy, the Court of Maximilian I shone with a brillance that was second to none. Music was an indispensable part of court life, and the Kaiser surrounded himself with an entire battery of musicians and first-rate composers like Hofhaimer, Senfl, and Isaac.
