Kyrie Eleison

(click title to view and hear online)

This is an original composition  by Bob Ashton.  When performed by changing voices it may be sung SSA, or SAC.  It is the perfect introduction piece Latin, becasue it is limited to four words.


It is an effective work, with aesthetic and emotional qualities that can be a tool to teach sensitive singing.


 Check the three-part variable voicing charts to see the voicing options with which it may be used with older adolescents and adults.  


When performed by early adolescent all-male groups, Parts I & II may be sung by Boy Trebles, and Part III by the Cambiatas. 


When sung by older adolescent all-male groups, Part I is sung by the changed-voice Tenors or Adolescent Baritones (8va lower), Part II by Adolescent Baritones or Basses (8va lower), and Part III by Boy Trebles and/or Cambiatas (actual pitch).

2.  Click the "Hear Choir Audio" link (upper right hand corner) to hear a choral ensemble sing the piece.  Use the Sibelius "page" icon to move the pages of the engraved copy manually as you listen.  Do not click the "play" icon while the ensemble is singing or you will hear both renditions simultaneously .
