In Nomine was a very popular form in the 16th and 17th Centuries - effectively it became a showcase of contrapuntal skills and all the major composers of the day contributed to the genre. The pieces were based on a pre-existing melody (initially the ‘Benedictus’ from John Taverner’s Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas, though later other such ‘cantus firmus’ were used) which sounded in the alto part spread over one, or even two bars.
The music is typically four or five parts and in this arrangement Elgar Howarth shares the ‘In Nomine’ between two trombones.
