Albert Hay Malotte’s setting of the The Lord’s Prayer is dedicated to the great American baritone John Charles Thomas who introduced it on the radio in 1935. It became enormously popular with American audiences. In much the same way as I feel about Sir Arthur Sullivan’s Victorian jewel The Lost Chord, I think this Malotte piece is most effective when sung without exaggerating its musical line or poetic content.
Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
