Pater noster

commissioned by Rupert Gough and Royal Holloway Choir who gave the first performance at the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music on 10 May 2014
author of text
Luke 11: 2b-4

Pater noster was commissioned by Rupert Gough and The Choir of Royal Holloway for this recording and was first performed at the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music in 2014. Clausen wished to show reverence for the ancient text in its Latin form, trying ‘not to “overdress” the text, but to respect it’. Within this contemplative atmosphere there are elements of word-painting, from the obvious high scoring of ‘in caelo’ offset against a low-voice ‘in terra’, to the harmonic subtleties of ‘tentationem’ or delicate nuance of ‘libera nos’.
