Composer Susan Thrift – a music teacher and church musician from Texas – has composed this gem of a piece that brings an unaccompanied, Latin text to young singers in a lovely and accessible manner. Using antiphonal (echo) singing and simple harmonies she has set the traditional Latin text of “Lord, Have Mercy (Kyrie Eleison), Christ, Have Mercy (Christe Eleison), Lord, Have Mercy (Kyrie Eleison)” to a simple, chant-like tune within a C-major tonality and octave singing range.
