The Lord’s Prayer
This was the first piece I wrote for a choir of men I conducted for a year in Stafford. With such a familiar text it can be hard to know how to bring new colour in a musical setting. Largely I tried to capture a sense of flowing serenity and thought the choir would respond well to a classic song form (AABA) but I did feel a personal response to ‘deliver us from evil’, hence the rich and dark chord at this point.
