  1. The Choralis Constantinus is the first collection (in three volumes!) of polyphonic settings of the proprium, for the whole liturgical year. Until then only the ordinarium part had received complete polyphonic arrangements. Volumes 1 and 3 were composed for the Habsburg Royal Chapel, and Volume 2 for the Konstanz Cathedral. This extremely important work was published posthumously by Formschneider in Nuremberg. Heinrich Isaac’s famous pupil Ludwig Senfl completed the unfinished compositions. The basic framework of the proprium – introitus, graduale, alleluia and communio - presents a constant factor in the whole of these works. המרכז הארצי
