John Rutter's Gloria is a musical setting of parts of the Latin Gloria. He composed it in 1974 on a commission from Mel Olson, and conducted the premiere in Omaha, Nebraska. He structured the text in three movements and scored it for choir, brass, percussion and organ, with an alternative version for choir and orchestra. It was published in 1976 by Oxford University Press.
The tree movements follow the fast-slow-fast scheme typical of concertos:
Allegro vivace – "Gloria in excelsis Deo"
Andante – "Domine Deus"
Vivace e ritmico – "Quoniam to solus sanctus"
The instrumentation for the brass version is four trumpets, 2 tenor trombones, bass trombone, tuba, timpani and percussion, and organ. The duration is given as 17 minutes
