This plainsong setting of the Lord's Prayer was adapted for paperless singing and gestures by MMC founder Donald Schell. The melody is ancient, possibly reaching as far back as first and second century synagogues. The gestures are adapted from ancient Christian postures of prayer.
The setting is essential call and echo, with the leader singing and gesturing one phrase at a time, with the assembly following. Full kneeling (prostration) is not required, but an invitation can be given to the group to adapt the gestures to their body's comfort and ability.
