Tu es petrus

Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina

Tu es petrus,
et super hanc petram aedificabo ecclesiam meam;
et portae inferi non prevalebunt adversus eam;
et tibi dabo claves regni coelorum.

Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church;
and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven

Matthew 16:18,19


Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594)
