Pater Noster composed by Tim Sarsany. For TTBB choir, a cappella (divisi). Prima Cantate Series. Concert, General, Sacred. Octavo. Published by Roger Dean Publishing (LO.15-2855R).
In the ordinary of the Mass, the "Pater Noster" ("Our Father") is most often spoken, but when sung, it is chanted. In this setting, the composer has chosen to use a more melodic approach to the text, yet the piece still retains some of the chanting effect. Syllabic stress of the text guides the meter and rhythm.
