Music of The Pater Noster: The Lord’s Prayer – Kenneth Leighton (1929 – 1988)

For my final posting in this series I’ve picked Leighton’s setting of the Lord’s Prayer. It’s surprisingly tranquil and has always been one of my favourite modern settings.  It’s sung below by The Choir of The Abbey School Tewkesbury. Enjoy :-).


Text: The Lord’s Prayer

[showhide type=”showtext” more_text=” Click to show/hide text ” less_text=” Click to show/hide text ” hidden=”yes”]

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 trespasses,
as we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
