Pater noster

author of text
Luke 11: 2b-4

Handl, sometimes known as Gallus, held a number of church and court posts in central Europe, writing a substantial and much-admired body of church music. This mellifluous Lord’s Prayer setting with its serenely celestial Amen is explicitly designated by the composer for two antiphonal choirs, one of high voices, the other low. The intended separation was vertical, with the angelic high voices symbolically placed in a high gallery.
