“Angularis fundamentum” is typically sung at the dedication or consecration of a church and on church anniversaries. For constructions too numerous to list in recent generations, it would be more appropriate to sing that Christ had been made a temporary foundation. A dispirited generation built temporary housing for its Lord, and in the next millnenium, the ease of its removal may be looked back upon as its chief virtue.
— Fr. George Rutler (2016)

SATB “Kyrie Eleison” • Henri Durieux
published 13 July 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

HE FOLLOWING KYRIE by Henri Durieux appeared around 1938 and might be performed a number of different ways. For example, you could have a cantor sing the 1st Kyrie. The congregation could sing the 2nd Kyrie. Your choir would (obviously) sing the 3rd Kyrie SATB. This pattern could be repeated for the rest of the piece.
