Gloria composed by Linda Spevacek. For SATB choir (with optional timpani). Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-1102).
Rhythmically exciting strains of "Gloria in excelsis Deo" frame a flowing sensitive, and contrasting middle section, which highlights a beautiful, original English text. A hauntingly effective augmented version of the opening melody reappears in several parts throughout this section. Perfect for school or church as a concert opener/closer or exuberant anthem. Full, yet accessible keyboard accompaniment. Adding the Timpani will help build intensity clear through to the dynamic ending. Stunning!
