Gloria - A Brazilian-Style Mass (for Liturgical use)

Choir type: Choirs with Religious Affiliation
Voicing: Mixed

Written by Will Lopes, Gloria is a complete musical setting of the mass incorporating new

musical treatment to the “ordinary” of the liturgy (Kyrie, Glory to God, Gospel

Acclamation, Eucharistic Acclamations and Lamb of God). There are additional

musical settings for a call to worship, gathering and final blessing. This setting focuses on

two main Brazilian musical styles: the Bossa-Nova (Brazilian Jazz) characterized by

syncopation, dissonances and light textures accompanied by a jazz ensemble (Piano, bass,

drums) and the Baião (Afro-Brazilian) based on the mixolydian scale, this style is

characterized by a mixed of Indie music elements and African rhythms including percussive

instruments also featuring accordion, triangle, drums and flute. Gloria is written for SATB

and congregation with optional strings parts.
