In 2015, the Laus Polyphoniae festival was part of a major cultural project entitled Petrus Alamire - Polyphony in the picture. The project was trifold and encompassed an exhibition in Antwerp cathedral, a scientific conference and a themed edition of the music festival. In his concert program, artistic director of the Huelgas Ensemble Paul Van Nevel focussed on repertoire that was not only of great significance to Petrus Alamire, but to the whole history of Western music: the Catholic mass.

More specifically, Paul Van Nevel devoted himself to the two final parts of the ordinary mass: the Sanctus that follows the Preface and the Agnus Dei which is sung as the priest is breaking the holy bread. The compositional and stylistic variety of the six Sanctus and Agnus Dei pairs is astonishing, but the final words always convey the same universal message: "Grant us peace".
