What is the musical texture of the Kyrie?

It has a monophonic texture because it consists of a single melodic line. It has no harmony.

What does the word texture mean in music?

Texture changes how the music sounds... Voila, a beautiful paragraph that describes it :"In music, texture is the way the melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic materials are combined in a composition (Benward & Saker 2003, 131), thus determining the overall quality of sound of a piece. Texture is often described in regards to the density, or thickness, and range, or width between lowest and highest pitches, in relative terms as well as more specifically distinguished according to the number of voices, or parts, and the relationship between these voices (see types of texture below) (Benward & Saker 2003, 131). A piece's texture may be affected by the number and character of parts playing at once, the timbre of the instruments or voices playing these parts and the harmony, tempo, and rhythms used."But if you didn't understand it in the first place, you probably aren't enlightened now. It just depends on how you play something, and it's fairly complex.
