One of John Tavener’s special attributes was his ability to find something new and yet accessible to say about a familiar text, a notable example being his (third) setting of The Lord’s Prayer, originally composed for The Tallis Scholars in 1999. In the repeated descending phrase, as it comes to rest on the chord of the dominant seventh, he surely captured the mood of ‘hallowed’ to perfection.
