Designed for four voices, tenor and baritone solos with orchestral accompaniment, the work respects the traditional sections of the mass – Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Benedictus, Agnus Dei – acquiring its title due to the importance given to the second part, Gloria, which occupies almost half the extent of the whole opposition.
