Programme Note
Nico Muhly Pater Noster (2008)
Pater Noster is just that, a setting of the “Our Father” text. Every composer has to have one of these! This setting attempts to reference Igor Stravinsky’s unaccompanied sacred music, notably, his setting of this same text. I bought a recording of the King’s Singers singing this when I was younger, and listened to it obsessively. I have never heard this piece performed live; it is an enormous pleasure to finally hear this miniature.
