"Chorale Chant" is set to the rhythm of the words of the Lord's Prayer. The harmonic language will be foreign to the student. This allows for an exploration of contemporary idioms in a classical setting.
The composer offers two endings; one for the Catholic version and one for the Protestant.
As in all chorales, voicing the chords is essential.
