Greg Scheer’s arrangement of “Abana,” the Arabic Lord’s Prayer, captures the powerful essence of the Lord’s Prayer through its vigorous and intense melody. Suitable for concert settings or worship services, this piece heightens the impact of one of the most cherished passages in the Bible as sung prayer. The inclusive nature of text in both English and Arabic help to cross the borders of difference in culture and faith.
