Like last week’s setting of the Pater Noster (see: Music of The Pater Noster: Pater Noster – Francesco dell’Aiolle (1492 – ±1540) | Saturday Chorale) Adrian Willaert’s beautiful setting of the Pater Noster has an English diplomatic connection. It was one of the pieces included what are now called the ‘Newberry-Oscott’ part-books. These were compiled by Philipe Verdelot in 1526 for a book of music presented to King Henry VIII of England as a gift by the city of Florence. It’s sung below by Magdala conducted by David Skinner. Enjoy :-).
Text: Pater noster
|Pater noster, qui es in caelis,|
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: sed libera nos a malo.
Luke 11: 2b-4
|Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,|
thy kingdom come, thy will be done
in earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
