As mentioned, I spent the past five days surfing. Here is a video I found of the "Gloria" from Schubert's Deutsche Messe. We all know the Sanctus from that Mass, and it even found its way into the newest version of the Worship hymnal. A few years back, I discovered the Agnus Dei from that Mass and it is very beautiful too. But, this weekend, I came across the Gloria, sung at the Easter Vigil at St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna. Magnificent. Someone needs to translate this into the new English translation of the Missal and get it into our hymnals.
