The Gloria for two four-part choirs arid continuo is one of the few among his works which were not published during Monteverdi's lifetime but which have nevertheless survived the centuries. This richly fashioned composition, in which concertante passages for various groups of voices alternate with tutti sections, already suggests the later cantata mass. An artistic effect to be especially valued is the repetition of the joyful coloratura music of the opening section set to the concluding "in Gloria Dei Patris". Score available separately - see item CA.2708100.
