Leroy Kyrie

composer
author of text
Ordinary of the Lady Mass

 
This piece takes its name from a mysterious tune called ‘Leroy’ that features in a number of Tudor musical manuscripts. The most likely explanation is that one of the 15th-century kings of England composed this melody, perhaps Henry IV or Henry V being ‘le roi’ in question. In Taverner’s ‘Leroy Kyrie’, the tune is sung by the sopranos.
