Tu es Petrus a 6
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Any Vatican composer setting a text about Saint Peter would have felt on his mettle, and nowhere does Palestrina make words shine more splendidly than in his six-voice Tu es Petrus. He must have identified with this text since he had already set it once before for seven voices, and soon would write one of his most elaborate parody Masses on this version. His sense of musical architecture is at its most compelling here as he builds up the massive pillars of sound which underlie the words ‘claves regni caelorum’. Joyful, positive in spirit, sonorous to the ear: Tu es Petrus sums up much of the mood of counter-Reformation Rome in general, and Palestrina’s art in particular.
