Here's a version recorded by Cliff Richard, entitled "The Millennium Prayer". It's the words of the Lord's prayer, set to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne". The record was number one in the UK charts for two weeks just before Christmas in 1999. It received a mixed reception, with some radio stations refusing to play it in the UK due to it's overtly Christian content. (The track is written by David Arch, Stephen Deal, Paul Field, Anne Skates and Nigel Wright).

The next interpretation is very different, this one is from prayerscapes.com, and is a creative reading of the Lord's Prayer, with an atmospheric musical underscore. The prayer is recorded in several languages, all montaged together. The music features strings (cello and violin) and various ambient sounds, playing in a (unconventional) 5/8 time signature. The track was first released in 2001 on the album "Chill" (by 24-7 prayer), and later by Prayerscapes in 2003. A higher quality version of the film has been made available here at Prayerscapes.
