"Kyrie Eleison" is a tribute to J.S. Bach, who is probably one of the most
transcendental composers that has ever existed. His music has an extraordinary
power over me. It transports me to the center of the universe, and is both calming
and energizing. Bach's music gives me joy and touches me deeply.

I wrote this piece during a very difficult time in my life. I was 21 years old, and
was going through an existential crisis.

One evening, I entered our town church, sat down at the organ, and began to
improvise. As tears streamed down my face, the notes of this Kyrie Eleison

I wrote a version for piano that remained in my repertoire for years, and I decided
to convert it into a piece for SATB choir. It was sung on a few occasions by
church choirs, but then it seemed to disappear. It always stayed in my memory,
and every now and again I played it, alone, at the piano.
