Movement one from the “Missa Brevis for Treble Voices”, this understated work features a 4th-Century Greek text on a unison melody in the tripartite form typical of the Kyrie. Its elegant simplicity speaks to the power of consenting to not having all of the answers and seeking beyond the false self to something greater.
Kyrie elison, Christie eleison, Kyrie elesion.
The great “I am,” show me your steadfast presence.
The anointed one, show me your steadfast presence.
The great “I am,” show me your steadfast presence .presence
