Even if you do nothing else today, please take the time to enjoy this.
My choir at Christ Northampton did a wonderful job rocking this wonderful version of The Lord’s Prayer this morning! It’s a West Indies tune, arranged by Carlton R. Young.
Everyone sang the verses ~ no soloist. Our version was faster and had much more “d” in “hallowed,” greatly enhancing the rhythm (“hal-low-ed-a”). We began with a 2-bar piano intro into the 1st verse, no vamp. A long “A” in the “Amen” verse seemed to fit the piece, projecting well in our acoustic with 6 singers.
