This setting of the Gloria is designed to be used with the Revised Roman Missal. Until copyright permission is confirmed, the words do not appear under the vocal line, but can be sung by the congregation by following the text in their new missals. the setting is largely syllabic, with any melismas clearly indicated by slurs. The piano part is a Sibelius reduction of the original score (also available on Score Exchange) for string quartet with optional wind, so not particularly pianistic. The original version of this Gloria was written for the congregation of the 9.30 Mass at the Priory of the Holy Spirit (Blackfriars, Oxford) and first sung there on September 25th, 2011, to general approval and with no problems. The parts are reasonably easy and were mastered by the musicians in a 10 minute rehearsal.

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.
