Johannes Wannenmacher (Vannius) (* ca. 1485 in Neuchâtel / Rhine , ca. 1551 in Interlaken) was a Swiss composer of the Renaissance. He first worked as a cantor in Berne, later in Freiburg, in the Netherlands. He sympathized with the Reformation (among other things, he was in a letter contact with Ulrich Zwingli in Zurich), which brought his arrest and "embarrassing interrogation" in 1530 with his colleagues there. He was released from custody and expelled from the country by the intercession of the reformed Bern city. The last two decades spent in Interlaken as a landlord. There are 27 compositions known as "motets, psalms, hymns, spiritual and secular songs". The composer probably was associated with the priest Melchior Kaspar Wannenmacher (c. 1490-1517), who worked together with a Hans Hoffmann in Neuchâtel on the Rhine as a "spiritual and secular nurse of the buves our dear frowen münster".
