Renaissance Augsburg was rich in both material and cultural wealth. The Augsburg Songbook is a unique collection of sacred and secular music which was compiled in the early 16th century. It contains music by some of the great composers of the time (Josquin, Senfl, Hofhaimer) and also many anonymous gems.
