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 :-).

Christ Church captioned John Farmer 300x517 This week's posting in my series dealing with the music of the Pater Noster is a rhymed metrical setting of the Lord's Prayer in English by the late Elizabethan composer John Farmer (±1570; fl 1591–1601).  We don't know all that much about him even the year of his birth is guesswork based upon a prefatory poem to his published collection of canons, which makes it clear that in 1591, the year in which they were published, Farmre was still 'in youth'.  His music was evidently well thought in the more strongly protestant sections of the Elizabethan religious and academic establishment because his music is heavily represented in East's psalter published in 1592.

Music of The Pater Noster: Pater Noster – Jean-Marie van Bronkhorst – Cascade Concert Choir and OSU Chamber Orchestra

I've picked another modern American setting of the Pater Noster for this week's entry in my series dealing with the Lord's Prayer. I've written about van Bronkhorst's music before – if you haven't heard it I strongly urge you to  listen to this performance of his Agnus Dei.  The performance below of his setting of the Pater Noster is a live (sound only) recording using a camcorder of a performance by the Cascade Concert Choir and OSU Chamber Orchestra conducted by Dr. Steven Zielke given at St. Mary's, Mount Angel, Oregon. The sing it  with verve and professionalism. Enjoy :-).
