Description

for SATB and brass ensemble or full orchestra
Gloria was written in 1974 in response to a commission from The Voices of Mel Olson, a choir based in the USA. The division of the work into three movements a respectively proclamatory, prayerful, and joyfully affirmative a corresponds to the divisions in the text. Most of the melodic material derives from a Gregorian chant associated with this text.
An accompaniment for orchestra without organ is also available.
Full scores, vocal scores, and instrumental parts are available on hire. The first movement of Gloria is available separately under the title Gloria 1.

Review Text

sits happily in the repertoire of almost any sized choir. Dating from 1974, it remains one of his most popular works. The two outer movements are gloriously bright, while the quieter middle section is more gentle. Once again, choirs love to sing this music, and audiences seldom fail to respond to it.

About John Rutter

John Rutter studied music at Clare College, Cambridge and first came to notice as a composer and arranger of Christmas carols and other choral pieces during those early years; today his compositions, including such concert-length works as Requiem, Magnificat, Mass of the Children, The Gift of Life, and Visions are performed around the world.
John edits the Oxford Choral Classics series, and, with Sir David Willcocks, co-edited four volumes of Carols for Choirs. In 1983 he formed his own choir The Cambridge Singers, with whom he has made numerous recordings on the Collegium Records label, and he appears regularly in several countries as a guest conductor and choral ambassador.
John holds a Lambeth Doctorate in Music, and was awarded a CBE for services to music in 2007.
