about

The Gloria has probably the most unconventional affect of this piece, focusing on the idea of enormity and overwhelmingness instead of the usual brilliance and celebration associated with glory. This is an older interpretation, having to do with the word's ancient association with weight and heaviness as well as majesty and wonder, and it feels appropriate given the idea of something so far beyond humanity as the splendor of heaven.

lyrics

Gloria in excelsis Deo // Glory to God in the highest
et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis // and on earth peace to men of good will.
Laudamus te, benedicimus te, // We praise You, we bless You,
adoramus te, glorificamus te, // we adore You, we glorify You,
gratias agimus tibi propter magnam gloriam tuam // we give you thanks for Your great glory,
Domine Deus, Rex coelestis, // Lord God, heavenly King,
Deus Pater omnipotens. // God the almighty Father.
Domine Fili, unigenity, Jesu Christe // Lord Jesus Christ, only begotten Son,
Domine Deus, Agnus Dei, Filius Patris // Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,
qui tollis peccata mundi, // You who take away the sins of the world,
miserere nobis; // have mercy on us;
qui tollis peccata mundi, // You who take away the sins of the world,
suscipe deprecationem nostram. / hear our prayers.
Qui sedes ad dexteram Patris, // You who sit at the right hand of the Father,
miserere nobis // have mercy on us.
Quoniam tu solus Sanctus, // For You alone are the Holy One,
tu solus Dominus, // you alone the Lord,
tu solus Altissimus, // you alone the Most High,
Jesu Christe, // Jesus Christ,
cum Sancto Spiritu in gloria Dei Patris. / with the Holy Spirit in the glory of God the Father.
Amen // Amen.
