“GLORIA” - a program featuring three wonderfully varied settings of the “Gloria” text from the Roman Mass.  The “Gloria” is an early prose hymn whose origins have been traced back to a “morning prayer” in the Apostolic Constitution (c.380) and to a Greek version of the the 2nd century.  The “Gloria” is a hymn of praise sung immediately after the “Kyrie” in the Ordinary of the Mass and is sung on all festal occasions.

 

Concert Repertoire

“Gloria” - Antonio Vivaldi  (SATB with SA solos* and orchestra)
