Johannes Kugelmann (1495-1542) was apparently a student of Paul Hofhaimer, and later concertmaster for the Duke of Prussia in Brandenburg. This collection is one of the earliest Protestant sacred music publications, appearing in Augsburg in 1540.
The choice of three recorders with voice is perhaps unusual for sacred music of the period, but works fairly well. There is no doubt about the relative quality of this collection, previously obscure.
