In Nomine

   Singular and exclusively English form of instrumental polyphony, whereby the Sarum antiphon Gloria tibi Trinitas is used as a cantus firmus, following John Taverner’s use of it in his four-voiced setting of the Benedictus from his six-voice Missa Gloria {}tibi Trinitas. The second section, setting the words in nomine Domini, became detached and widely circulated. Over 150 In nomines down to Henry Purcell were inspired by this Tavener excerpt.
