Tu es Petrus a 7

1569; 7vv; Liber primus motettorum, Rome
author of text
Matthew 16: 18-19

The seven-voice Tu es Petrus, from the 1569 Liber primus motettorum, and less familiar than the later six-voice setting, is a joyous celebration of confident faith in the church of Peter. Its seamless polyphonic flow, though not its harmonic language, suggests composers such as Morales and, especially, Gombert.

from notes by Ivan Moody © 1999

Tu es Petrus, à sept voix (extrait du Liber primus motettorum de 1569)—moins familier que le Tu es Petrus ultérieur, à six voix—est une célébration joyeuse de la foi confiante en l’église de Pierre. Son flux polyphonique homogène suggère, contrairement à son langage harmonique, des compositeurs comme Morales et, surtout, Gombert.

extrait des notes rédigées par Ivan Moody © 1999
Français: Hypérion

Das siebenstimmige Tu es Petrus aus dem Liber primus motettorum von 1569, das weniger bekannt ist als die spätere sechsstimmige Vertonung, ist eine Verherrlichung des unverbrüchlichen Glaubens an die Kirche Petri. Das nahtlose polyphone Fließen, wenn auch nicht das harmonische Idiom des Werks lassen an Komponisten wie Morales und insbesondere Gombert denken.
