“Partly on account of these alterations, and partly because I have been unable to ascertain the authorship of many compositions—which have come to me either in manuscript or through other collections—I have thought it right to publish the volume without appending the names of writers to their works. This, however, I confess to be a defect…”
— Benjamin Hall Kennedy (1863)

Joan Brudieu • Simple Kyrie (Revised)
published 24 September 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

252 Hans Memling HIS KYRIE IS quite brief, simple to teach, can easily involve the congregation in a meaningful way (without taxing their abilities), contains beautiful polyphonic lines, and fits on just one page! It’s based on a composition by composer Joan Brudieu, who died in 1591AD. 1

The cantor can sing the chant, the entire congregation can repeat it, then the choir alone can sing the polyphonic section. This is repeated for the “Christe” and the final “Kyrie.”

1   For some reason, tons of fantastic composers died in the 1590s.
