The Lord's Prayer

First line:
Our Father, which art in heaven
author of text
Matthew 6: 9-13

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.
