Gloria

for mixed choir a cappella with alto & baritone soli
by  Sanford Dole

This energetic setting of Gloria in excelsis Deo, from the Latin Mass, opens with rhythmic patterns that enhance the text. Midway through, the chorus softly occults between two simple chords under an alto then baritone soloists. The opening patterns return before a fugal section at the text “cum santo spiritu.” The final Amen is another variation on the opening figure and concludes with big C major chords.
