Oratio Dominica

First line:
Pater noster, qui es in caelis
1607; re-published in the 1622 Cantiones Sacrae; SATB SATB; alternatim
author of text
Luke 11: 2b-4

Oratio Dominica (a setting of The Lord’s Prayer for eight voices alternating with plainchant) elongates the notes of the plainchant in the second voice down in the polyphonic texture. Praetorius thereby achieves a grand and static effect in this highly polished miniature.

Oratio Dominica (une mise en musique du Notre-Père à huit voix alternant avec le plain-chant) allonge les notes du plain-chant à la deuxième voix grave de la texture polyphonique, ce qui permet à Praetorius d’obtenir un effet grandiose et statique dans cette miniature raffinée à souhait.

Oratio Dominica (eine Vertonung des Vaterunsers für acht Stimmen, im Wechselgesang mit Choral) verlängert die Noten des Chorals in der zweiten Oberstimme im polyphonen Satz. Dadurch erreicht Praetorius in dieser fein geschliffenen Miniatur einen grandiosen, statischen Effekt.
