The Kyrie (“Lord, have mercy”) and Sanctus (“Holy, holy, holy”) come from Betty Carr Pulkingham’s Freedom Mass, based on traditional South African melodies. In 1982 Pulkingham traveled to South Africa with the Community of Celebration to share music and to witness in troubled areas there. She was moved by the spirituality and music shared by patients at Cape Town’s Baragwaneth Hospital, where they worshiped, and again at a choral festival organized at the cathedral in Pretoria. The Kyrie is based on the beautiful prayer song Thuma Mina, and the Sanctus is based on a vibrant protest song Asikhatali.
The Agnus Dei comes from the Iona Community’s St. Bride setting, and like much of Iona’s music, encourages part-singing through the use of a simple canon.
