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.
