From the Publisher

Kyrie is a series of free variations on Kyrie fons bonitatis, as found in the Liber Usualis, an official Catholic book of chant based on historical sources. "Kyrie eleison" is Greek for "Lord have mercy upon us" and serves as the first section of a mass.

The sound of several flutes playing unison Gregorian chant very softly has haunted me since I first heard it some years ago. When I was commissioned by the Tucson Flute Club this beautiful sound came to mind, and it led me to write this piece. The Kyrie fons bonitatis has an unusual form, with a two-part refrain. This refrain echos throughout my piece, and, after wandering far afield, brings it to a quiet close. - K. Hoover

Kyrie was commissioned by the Tucson Flute Club, to be premiered at the National Flute Convention in Phoenix, Arizona in August, 1998. This commission has been generously funded by The Brannen-Cooper Fund.
