Designed by Peter Phillips to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War in 1918, a complete Mass provides the framework, put together from war-like sources. These come either from the tradition of the Armed Man (L'homme armé), or are based on a chanson actually describing a battle (La batalla). The peaceful element of the programme is provided by two movements from Victoria's 6-voice Requiem Mass and partly by some deeply moving funeral motets: Tavener's work was sung at the funeral of Princess Diana; Mouton's at the funeral of Anne of Brittany; and Lobo's at the funeral of Philip II of Spain. In Arvo Pärt's beautiful The Woman with the Alabaster Box, Christ refers to his own burial.
