on the speaker to the left to hear the chant sung by the priests
of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP). Play it a few
times so that the sound becomes familiar to you (before the actual
Pater Noster, you will hear: "Per omnia saecula saeculorum,"
"Oremus," "Amen," and a very short prayer).
Next, take the prayer
one line at a time. If you're new to Latin, just memorize the
words to the very first line along with that line's melody (which
will make memorizing the prayer in Latin a lot easier!). When that
is mastered, move on to the next line, and so on.
The Words of
the Pater Noster
Pater noster, qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur Nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua,
sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo.

"hearing" the right notes, click the second speaker at left to hear the melody
in a very slowed-down midi format while referring to the modern notation
below. A rough pronunciation guide to the Latin appears below each line in
