THE LORD'S PRAYER.

Thomas Tallis, (c. 1520–1585)

JU JE

Septe

Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed | be Thy | name; || Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our | daily | bread, || and forgive us our debts, as | we for- |

give our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver | us from | evil; || for Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for | ever · and | ever. A-men.

CHANTS.

Suggestions on Chanting.

1. The words, from the commencement of each verse and half-verse, up to the accented syllable, are called the Recitation.

2. On reaching the the accented syllable, and beginning with it, the music of the chant commences, in strict time (a tempo), the upright strokes corresponding to the bars. The Recitation must therefore be considered as outside the chant, and may be of any length. The note on which the Recitation is made is called the Reciting-note.

3. If there is no syllable after that which is accented, the accented syllable must be held for one whole bar or measure.

4. An asterisk (*) is a direction to take breath. Other stops (,;) must be attended to as in good reading.

5. As the accent holds the position of the first beat of the first bar, it is unnecessary to sing it louder than any of the words recited: its position, musically, will give it quite enough emphasis.

6. Final ed is always pronounced as a separate syllable.
