Gloria in excelsis Deo, performed by Mendham Voices

 

One of our high school choirs performs a gospel version of the J.S. Bach’s “Gloria in Excelsis Deo.” Recorded at Roxiticus Golf Club’s Candlelight Dinner Concert.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“Gloria in excelsis Deo” (Latin for “Glory to God in the highest”) is a hymn known also as the Greater Doxology (as distinguished from the “Minor Doxology” or Gloria Patri) and the Angelic Hymn. The name is often abbreviated to Gloria in Excelsis or simply Gloria.

The hymn begins with the words that the angels sang when the birth of Christ was announced to shepherds in Luke 2:14. Other verses were added very early, forming a doxology.

Gloria in excelsis Deo (Glory to God in the Highest), is a church cantata written by the German Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach, and the only one of his church cantatas set to a Latin text. He composed the Christmas cantata in Leipzig probably in 1745 to celebrate the end of the Second Silesian War on Christmas Day.  The composition’s three movements all derive from the Gloria of an earlier Missa written by Bach in 1733, which the composer would later use as the Gloria of his Mass in B minor.
