"These pages present Ludwig Senfl's œuvre and document the presence of his works in contemporary sources. It will be possible to research the available information in three different databases: a catalogue of the works, a catalogue of the sources (in planning stage), non-musical documents concerning Ludwig Senfl (not yet realised) The present research project is working on a catalogue of Senfl's works that is continuously being transferred to and aligned with the online database. A separate database of the musical sources will be set up during the coming years, whereas a catalogue of non-musical documents will be realised at a later stage. The website provides the basic information of the project's findings. After the completion of the project (2014) a detailed catalogue of the works and sources will appear in print."--English introduction.
