Biography Senfl joined the imperial chapel in 1498 or earlier, becoming a student of Heinrich Isaac, and in 1508 is described as "clericus". In 1520 the Emperor Charles V dismissed the musicians, and from 1523 on Senfl stayed in Catholic Munich, never the less corresponding extensively with Martin Luther.
