Mark Baker : Our Father (Notre Pére)

Maurice Duruflè (1902-1986) dedicated this hauntingly beautiful setting of the Lord's Prayer to his wife. Simple and direct, it is almost chantlike in its melodic purity. Originally written for unison voices (or solo voice) with organ accompaniment, Duruflé later scored it for four-part chorus. These new editions include an English text for singing, the original French text, and a keyboard reduction of the unaccompanied version.

Ubi Caritas : SATB :  :  : Sheet Music : 50600000 : 073999127843 : 063404995X

Maurice Duruflé : Ubi Caritas

Maurice Duruflé based this famous motet on an ancient plainchant melody. This new adaptation makes the motet more accessible by an intelligent redistribution of parts: in its opening and closing sections, the first tenor line is reassigned to the altos, and the alto line is given to the tacet sopranos. All of Duruflé's sumptuous harmonies are retained. For the first time, a piano reduction for rehearsal is included.
