about this recording:

What little we know about Adam von Fulda’s biography is exasperatingly meager and quickly told: He was probably born around 1445 in Fulda, entered the services of Prince-Elector Frederick the Wise of Saxony in 1490, and later became court composer and Kapellmeister in Torgau. By 1502 he was teaching at the university in Wittenberg, where he died of the pest in 1505. It is however a fact that Adam has gone down in musical history as the German composer of the waning fifteenth century, even though his oeuvre is actually relatively slim.  The vocal quartet Stimmwerck was founded in Munich in 2001 with the goal of presenting the composers of the Renaissance to new audiences. The name is derived from the designation for a group of like instruments, as it is used, among other places, in Michael Praetorius´Syntagma Musicum.
