These mass movements are excerpted from the Lithuanian composer’s Missa Brevis for children’s voices. Set in D major, the opening Kyrie is marked Andantino and begins with a lyric, chant-like melody passed from one voice part to the next. The festive Gloria is more homophonic in nature and includes two shorter soprano solos.
