The programming concept on this disc is built upon the individual clauses of The Lord's Prayer. It ranges over the centuries to explore the spiritually charged text. Chant is at the heart of the program, and each composer's setting illuminates the others, shedding rich interpretative light on the poetic and devotional aspects of the prayer. - © 2012 WFMT (Chicago)
