Summae Trinitati
Summae Trinitati was written for Westminster Cathedral, for the installation of the Most Reverend Vincent Nichols as Archbishop of Westminster in May 2009. Like Tu es Petrus it is scored for voices, brass, timpani and organ and has Coronation service ‘wow’ factor. The text is the Responsory for the Solemn Reception of an Archbishop, and the fanfare with which it begins made a huge impression as the new Archbishop entered the great west doors of the cathedral. There are three sections, the central one gentler and using MacMillan’s familiar ornamental chant.
