GLORIA
By Simon Johnson

for SATB and organ or brass, timpani, and organ
This jubilant single-movement setting of the Latin Gloria by celebrated organist Simon Johnson has something for everyone. Scored for SATB choir with brass ensemble, organ, and timpani (or organ alone), the work is highly original and packed with content, including recurring rhythmic and melodic motifs, harmonic twists, a peaceful central section, and a four-part fugue. Johnson's choral writing is clean and concise, and more experienced singers will find the vocal lines approachable and enjoyable. The instrumental ensemble/organ part is integral to the work, featuring short interludes, driving rhythms, and melodic and textural interest, as well as providing support to the voices where necessary. This exciting work holds its own among more established Gloria settings and will stand the test of time.
