Benjamin Britten

Thou shalt make the Princes over all the earth: 
They shall remember thy name, O Lord. 
Instead of thy fathers, Sons are born to thee: 
Therefore shall the people praise thee, Alleluia.

Tu es Petrus
Et super hanc petram
Ecclesiam meam. Alleluia.

Thou art Peter,
And upon this rock
I will build
my church. Alleluia.

from the Gradual of the Feast of St Peter and St Paul
