    Default Kyrie - arranged for string quartett

    I adore the pureness of the choral music of Palestrina, so I tried to write a Kyrie for a capella choir somehow touchung this kind of spirit which moves me very much. This is my string quartett version of this Kyrie:

    "Kyrie eleison - Lord, have mercy"
    "Christe eleison - Christ, have mercy"

    Beautiful piece! I really see what you were trying to capture. One of my favorite things posted on here that I've yet seen.

    Generally very pleasant, light, meditative piece. I would have liked to have some contrast in color and some more pleasing harmonies amidst the modal ambiguity. But all in all, a good experience to have listened. Keep it up!

    Thank you for your coments! Could you give me an example of "modal ambiguity" in the score? I don't really know what you refer to ...

    It is more of a ubiquitous thing. What I mean is that the progression of the harmony of the piece feels ambiguous and indiscriminate at times. This is because the music is almost totally within the Ionian mode. I couldn't find more than a couple accidentals. This lack of harmonic tension and variety is the reason I consider the piece to be ambiguous in how it goes on.
