Description:

Quiet simplicity, profound petition, and unending hope characterize this piece in which the refrain concludes “Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison.” The verses then take up a litanic form alternating between cantor invocations - e.g., “In the desert of despair” - and choir and assembly responses, “Be with us, Lord.” A highly useful piece for Lent and reconciliation services.
