"Kyrie" is the fourth movement from a larger work entitled Reconciliation, a set of 12 Latin prayers.  
Each movement takes it's inspiration from individual postcards containing pictures of  St. Michael's Cathedral
in Coventry, England.  When performed in sequence, Reconciliation can serve as a worship service however,
the individual movements also can stand alone.

The particular postcard which inspired this movement contains a picture of a sculpture the face of Jesus
Christ.  The material for the sculpture was supplied from a fatal car wreck.  

I tried to take the imperfect and ugly of everyday life in a broken world and juxtapose that with God's perfect
love, thus adding to the theme of Reconciliation. The text of "Lord have mercy" and "Christ have mercy"
contain some of the ugliest dissonances I have ever composed.  The "Amen" refrain contains a very
predictable and calming circle of fifths progression representing God's perfect and unconditional love.  
                                          Kyrie eleison             Lord have mercy. Amen.
                                         Christe eleison          Christ have mercy. Amen.
                                          Kyrie eleison             Lord have mercy. Amen.
