Bruckner: Os Justi
Bach Collegium San Diego; Ruben Valenzuela, Artistic Director

The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
and his tongue speaks what is just.
The law of his God is in his heart:
and his feet do not falter.
Alleluia.
I have found David, my servant;
I have anointed him with my holy oil.
Alleluia

Palestrina: Tu es Petrus
New York Polyphony + countertenor Tim Keeler, tenor Andrew Fuchs and bass-baritone Jonathan Woody

You are Peter,
And upon this Rock I will build My Church:
and the gates of hell shall not overcome it.
And I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven.

Whatever you bind upon earth shall be bound in heaven,
and whatever you release upon earth shall be released in heaven,
and I will give you the keys to the kingdom of Heaven.

Rihards Dubra: Duo Seraphim
El León de Oro; Marco Antonia García de Paz

The anthem Duo Seraphim mixes the vision of the prophet Isaiah of the two seraphim who proclaim to each other before God the Trisagion, that is, the three times holy to God, together with a text of the First Letter of Saint John, in which he affirms the unity in the Trinity.
