Choir (SATB) & Organ
November, 23. 2014.
St. Mark Episcopal Church. Evanston, IL.
David Plank, Choir Director.
“Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth.”
The joyful song the angels sung on the night Christ was born became an important part of the liturgy. Extending over denominational borders, all professed Christians rejoice in the “Gloria” and its significance. That’s the essence of this piece: a festive setting of the “Gloria” with the original text in Latin, accompanied by the Organ, adequate for the average church choir, and suitable for liturgical use regardless of denomination.
