Other information Coming from my love of Renaissance polyphony, "Kyrie"uses elements borrowed from, perhaps the most famous of all 16th century compositions, Palestrina’s Missa Papae Marcelli. Beginning with clear echoes of the mass' opening, it subsequently develops into a nebulous, unarticulated harmonic cloud. The amorphous character of this music serves to emphasise the arrival of a direct quotation from Palestrina which, in the final bars, emerges distinct and triumphant. JL
