"The Lord's Prayer" is not just a powerful musical interpretation of Christ's example of how to pray - it is also a testimony of love, sourced in the composer's personal love story.
The thematic content for "The Lord’s Prayer" came from recordings of the composer's fiancée (now wife) reading the Lord’s Prayer. Lewis transcribed the pitch changes in her speaking voice and wrote each movement using those motifs as building blocks. Then harmonic and rhythmic development was used to paint musical images of what each of the seven sections of the Lord’s Prayer meant to the Lewis. A good example of this kind of development is found in the last section of one of the seven movements, “Forgive Us”. The fast descending lines in a now Major key represent God’s forgiveness raining down on us.
The entire work, comprising seven movements, with a combined duration of more than 17 minutes, is filled with rich symbolism and powerful emotion. The work, which took three years to complete, is equally suited to concert halls and traditional church services alike.
