"Carillon" was composed in the fall of 1996. It started life as a MIDI sequencing exercise at the time that I knew very little about the subject and was to show me how to do program changes in one track dedicated to the chromatic (tuned) percussion. (Actually two tracks were eventually used due to overlapping in one spot.)

It is appropriate that, some years later I have used this file for the same purpose in Myriad's Harmony Assistant/Virtual Singer program.

The text, thought of that way from the beginning, is that of a Greek Kyrie. I also set the text in the Mass of John the Baptist for Male Chorus and Organ written much earlier in 1972 for the Church of St. Mary the Virgin in Manhattan. David Solomons' version of this work may be accessed here.

Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison.
(Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy.)
