Duration (min):

Composer's note:  Kyrielle is an invocation to the Virgin Mary. The title is from a medieval French poetic form based on the Kyrie ("God have mercy on us”). The word Kyrielle also evokes a feminine meaning, with the French "elle" (“she”) embedded in the word. The title then can mean "Goddess have mercy on us," and can refer to all compassionate female spirits, including the Chinese Kwan-Yin, the Japanese  Kannon, and the Tibetan Tara.
