Kyrie Eleison

Kyrie Eleison - student project

Hello, Dr Allen

 

I know I have no right making songs given that I only started studying counterpoint and all this SATB theory this month. But I've been studying music theory for a year now on my own and trying to do like old school music composition. It's my dream to be a composer and I'm saving up money to study a degree.

 

Sooooo in the mean time I'm just getting to learn as much as I can and I was hoping you could look over my work. Help me out. 

 

I wrote it in my native language Shona but it's a Catholic song as you've figured already. I struggled not to break the counterpoint rules and still have the melody sing-able.
