The rubrics for Holy Thursday and Easter provide for the the priest to intone the Gloria, and then for all the bells to be rung, prior to the commencing of the Gloria proper.

This organ piece is designed to as a fanfare to accompany the ringing of the bells and is based upon the melody of the Gloria intonation. The Gloria proper can follow without a break at the end.

Please contact me in advance if you want to perform this in public.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
