Choral work by Antonio Lotti (c.1667-1740); transcribed for band by Brian Harris

The Kyrie is part of the Ordinary of the Roman Catholic Mass. This musical setting of the Kyrie was written for choir by Italian composer Antonio Lotti, who spent his entire career at the famous St. Mark's Basilica in Venice.

The adaptation of choir literature for use by wind players provides an ideal tool for teaching basic musicianship such as intonation, balance, and blend as well as the advanced techniques of phrasing, nuance of line, and accuracy of ensemble articulation. Because the work consists of only 4 "voices," players can more readily hear and address individual, section, and ensemble problems.

The score and each part is notated with the specific voice assignment (S = soprano, A = alto, T = tenor, B = bass). This allows the conductor to rehearse like groups by simply asking for "all players with the alto line" and so forth. Knowing that another instrument is playing the exact same line can encourage them to listen across the band in order to match style/balance with the other players.
