Taverner's festal Mass "Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas" is some of his most elaborate and beautiful music. It was hugely influential both on his contemporaries and successors. In fact it gave rise to an entire new genre of music the "In Nomine" every English composer upto and including Purcell himself, tested their mastery of contrapuntal techniques by basing music on the 'In nomine' section of the Benedictus of this Mass - Taverner's "Missa Gloria Tibi Trinitas". That is a unique achievement in the history of English music.

This music video includes the Cantus Firmus and a troped Kyrie. I've included the cantus firmus so that you can hear it and recognise it as it occurs throughout the Mass. The troped Kyrie (in this case Kyrie Deus creator omnium) was widely used in the Sarum rite Masses said and sung in England at that time.
