This setting of The Lord’s Prayer alternates between Latin and English.  The Latin words are sung to the original plainsong, with the ensuing choral phrases growing out of the plainsong’s contours.  Interaction between tenor soloist and choir further emphasises the juxtaposition of the two languages.

Pater noster, qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua,
sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut
et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo.
Quia tuum est regnum,
et potestas, et Gloria,
in saecula.

Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever.
