I can follow sheet music slightly but a video or audio clip would be better.
Here are two common chant settings of the Our Father, one in english, one in latin.
Latin sheet music
(note the MP3 starts a little before the sheet music does, so just listen for that "praeceptis"
English (see attachment) (This has no intro, but just the prayer itself)
The Latin was the "original", and the english setting is a adaptation to make it work with the english language better. I think the latin version is much more beautiful though.
