The Lord’s Prayer

The Lord's Prayer by Joanna Forbes L'Estrange

The Lord’s Prayer
by Joanna Forbes L’Estrange

“Simply delicious musical portraiture of this ancient prayer.”
Homer Ferguson, North Carolina, USA

Based on a setting of The Lord’s Prayer from Preces & Responses by Joanna Forbes L’Estrange

For SATB (unaccompanied)

Published by RSCM


I initially wrote this setting of The Lord’s Prayer as part of my Preces & Responses. Following its publication, I received so many lovely comments about it that the RSCM has now published the prayer as a stand-alone piece. As is often my intention with music intended to be sung within a liturgical context, I have kept the melodies simple and the harmonies approachable with plenty of interest in every voice part.

It is my hope that this setting may become a staple of many parish church choirs.
