The Lord's Prayer is central to the practise of the Christian faith. This musical setting is scored for an 'a cappella' choir comprising soprano, mezzo-soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, and bass singers; but is also suitable for either a soprano or tenor solo. The setting would generally be accompanied on the organ, but orchestral and band parts are included, as is a piano part for rehearsal. The organ part is entire and may be played as an organ solo. The alto saxophone part may be played expressively, and it makes a fine solo with organ accompaniment. The setting is suitable for congregational singing.
