This is the most haunting setting of the Kyrie I know, the introduction is one of my favourite bits of music

I wont comment on the singer...except to say he has a tendancy to go flat

Its a very sombre piece because it happens right after something that doesnt really belong in a Christian Mass at all, but is VERY perternant to some of the more recent major wars.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dw3kRv6SVN0 there was some very uneasy people who heard this sung in Ripon Cathedral afew years ago...the laugh of it is, of course, that all conqured countries with churches would have been adapted for this very piece.
