Gounod's "Pater noster" reflects the pressure by the church on composers in the mid-19th century to write in an austere style (style antiquo)which imitates the renaissance counterpoint of Palestrina. Lisz, Gounod, and Bruckner all took up this style of composition in some of their works for Christian worship. I have replaced the traditional Latin text of the Lord's Prayer with the familiar English version, making note-value and rhythmic changes as needed, and slightly altered the harmonization of the last three measures to bring the piece to a more satisfactory close as a stand-alone anthem.
