Since then he has encouraged the performance of Renaissance music all over the world. His close relationship with El León de Oro, which began in 2012, is proof of his sense of this mission. In 2017 he was made Director Honorífico of LDO, alongside their chief conductor Marco Antonio García de Paz. In addition to eighty concerts a year with The Tallis Scholars, he continues to pursue this mission with Intrada of Moscow, the BBC Singers, the Nederlands Kamerkoor, the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, and Le Chœur de Chambre de Namur.
In recent years Peter has commissioned a number of contemporary composers to write music which will suit choirs that specialize in polyphony. Amongst these have been John Tavener, Eric Whitacre, Gabriel Jackson, Alex Campkin, Nico Muhly and Matthew Martin. He has also formed a special relationship with Arvo Pärt. In addition to conducting, Peter writes and broadcasts. He recently concluded a six-programme series for BBC Radio 3 entitled The Glory of Polyphony.
In 2010 Peter was made a Bodley Fellow of Merton College, Oxford, where he was instrumental in setting up a new choral foundation. In 2005 he was made a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Minister of Culture.
