The programming concept on Pater Noster is unique: Each piece builds upon the last, focusing on the individual clauses of The Lord’s Prayer. Beginning and ending in plainchant, the composers on the recording range from Josquin, Palestrina and Byrd to Stravinsky, Bernstein, and Durufle spanning many centuries to explore the spiritually charged text. Recorded live at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Nashville, Tennessee, each section of the album includes a setting of The Lord’s Prayer, alongside other pieces focusing on the particular lines of text. Each composer’s setting illuminates the others, shedding rich interpretative light on the poetic and devotional aspects of the prayer.
