Guillaume de Machaut (c. 1300–1377) wrote his monumental Messe de Nostre Dame before 1365.This work holds the distinction of being the first complete setting of the Ordinary of the Mass by a singlecomposer. The first movement of five, Kyrie, is based on the plainchant Vatican Kyrie IV. In thisarrangement for horn choir, I have taken liberties with several details not included in the original sheetmusic like dynamics, slurs, fermatas, written out repeats, and some varying use of timbre. All of these areincluded to create a more stylistically accurate performance, but it should be kept in mind that studyingrecordings is (as always) crucial. The version by Ensemble Organum (can be found on be an excellent place to start. Some other notes on this work:

-any section may be omitted
-the 9th part can be played by horn or any bass instrument (a part in C is provided)-all solos are optional
-full duration 8:30
