General Information

Title: Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas
Composer: John Taverner

Number of voices: 6vv   Voicing: SATTBB
Genre: SacredMass

Language: Latin

    Manuscript ca. 1575 in The Baldwin Partbooks, no. 133
Description: This mass has no Kyrie since in the liturgical use of the period, the Kyrie was generally troped. It is not unusual in modern times to precede this mass with the composer's Kyrie Le Roy. The Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas is also notable because the In nomine section of the Sanctus is the 'mother' of a multitude of instrumental "In Nomine" compositions (Benedictus qui venit IN NOMINE Domini) by various Renaissance composers: Richard Alwood, John Bull, Wiliam Byrd, Richard Dering, Alphonso Ferrabosco I, Alphonso Ferrabosco II, Orlando Gibbons, John Jenkins, William Lawes, Mallory, John Mundy, Robert Parsons, Henry Purcell, Nicholas Strogers, Thomas Tallis, Christopher Tye, John Ward, Thomas Weelkes, and Robert White.
