Accompanied by thick mystical chords, this unison setting of the Lord’s Prayer could probably be effective with treble or male unison, but is certainly most impressive when sung by mixed voices. (And what mixed choir can’ t benefit from working on a beautiful and expressive unison?) Marked “dolcissimo” throughout, it is truly a unique piece. French and English texts are notated on separate staves to accommodate the necessary adaption for English.
