Kyrie Eleison (SATB)
Kyrie Eleison (from Indonesian Mass) is a project to combine Indonesian traditional music elements and Western writing style.
The first few notes of the opening melody is taken from a folk song from West Java called Cingcangkeling, one of the most important folk songs in Sundanese culture. From bar 25 to 37, the successive entrances from the lowest voice to the highest is meant to represent the rice terraces that can be found throughout the island of Java. In the Christe section, the full pentatonic pelog scale is used to imitate the Gamelan, and the Soprano line on bars 57-65 represents the Sinden (the female singer in gamelan performances), with the rest of the choir representing the Gamelan orchestra.
