Notre Père, Op 14
composer
published 1978
author of text
Matthew

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
This setting of the Lord’s Prayer clearly demonstrates how Duruflé’s few choral works were fashioned for liturgical use; the French text is used, and set without the doxology. Each phrase is presented separately and with a straightforward homophony which suggests the rhythm of contemplative speech or prayer. The work was published in 1978 and is dedicated to the composer’s wife.
