Tanndernac or Tandernaken, al op den Rijn comes from an international hit of the 15th Century which tells the tale of two girls from Andernach on the Rhine, having a chat about boy problems and being overheard by one of the boyfriends.

It was set by many notable composers such as Alexander Agricola, Senfl and even Henry VIII. We will be playing the highly virtuosic setting by Brumel as well as Petrus Alamire’s in our 6pm concert at St Catharine’s College Chapel, Cambridge on Friday 16th November;  at which we will be featuring a selection of music from the Germanic lands by composers such as Isaac, Senfl, Pierre de la Rue and Josquin des Prez.

We will also be playing at the short evening service, Nightsongs on Thursday 15th November at 9.30 and very much looking forward to working with Dr Edward Wickham and the chapel choir’s choral scholars.
