Missa ’Tu es Petrus’ (You are Peter) was first performed in Peterborough Cathedral in August 2003 by the St Teilo Singers.

The outer sections of the Kyrie feature a stormy organ part that contrasts with the more ’grounded’ (rock-like) choral writing. The central section (Christe eleison) is more contrapuntal than the outer sections. The Kyrie is the most aggressively dissonant movement of this Mass setting.

The Gloria is the longest movement in this Mass setting and features contrasting sections. There is some sub-division of the voices and opportunity for solo work.

The opening of the Sanctus suggests mystery, but the mood gradually changes to one of jubilant praise.

The Benedictus begins in a contrapuntal style; but, at the word ’Hosanna’, material from the Sanctus returns and the mood once again becomes gradually more jubilant.

It is in the Angnus Dei that the plainsong ’Tu es Petrus’ finally reveals itself in full and in its original form (tenor bb.37-40). Elements of the plainsong may be found throughout this Mass setting, but only motivically. The appearance of the entire plainsong in its original form towards the close of the work helps to bring the Mass to a satisfying conclusion and is linked to the prayer that we may be granted peace: ’Dona nobis pacem’.
