Padre Nuestro (Our Father): Choral Setting in Spanish
This setting of the Lord's Prayer (The "Our Father"/"Padre Nuestro") was composed using one of the Latin American Spanish versions of the prayer. The intent was to compose a medieval sounding choral work with contemporary language, while creating various tonal overlays--both from the sounds of the Spanish language and the sung notes. The weave between ancient and modern is meant to create a synthesis of sound, and convey newness, growth, and the future, while recognizing our reliance on the past. Spanish was chosen, as the language spoken by one of the largest populations of Christians.
