Music of the Pater Noster: Pater Noster – John Caldwell (b1938):

Choir of the Abbey School Tewkesbury captionedThis week’s entry in my series of settings of the Pater Noster is the setting composed by the English academic, musicologist, and composer John Caldwell. Caldwell composed it in 2001 it’s mostly chordal with some counterpoint at the end and reflects Caldwell’s interest in  medieval and renaissance music. It’s sung below by the Choir of the Abbey School, Tewkesbury. Enjoy :-).

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.
