2008, Classical Communications Ltd (Gift of Music) The Oxford Clerks and Le Basile.
The Kyrie elesion is one of the oldest (perhaps the oldest truely Xian) Christian chants and is still used in Catholic/Orthodox and Anglican/Lutherean churches.
This uses the proper settings from the medieval Sarum rite and various Franco-Burgundian sqaues to the ordinary setting. (Proper is the term used to denote settings linked to a particular festival or time in the church calender.) Very relaxing, and being sung by lay clerks spiritual as well.
