Gloria in excelsis

This is for Mr. Joustra, our resident Latin-rite Calvinist, who loves the Gloria in excelsis Deo and ends his email posts with the final verses of this ancient doxological hymn. There is a much longer Greek version used in the Orthodox Church which is chanted on Palm Sunday evening. Here also is something on the history of what is sometimes referred to as the Greater Doxology. Mr. Joustra should perhaps come to St. John the Evangelist, where the Gloria is sung in English every sunday.
