Vivaldi wrote three Glorias, The famous one (RV589), This one (RV588) and one that has been completely lost.
This transcription came about because of a request by Sue W. who was looking for the "Et In Terra Pax Hominibus".
Since I was interested in "The other Gloria" I did a bit of research, found the score and transcribed it. Since I quite liked it, I decided to do all of it.
A nice suprise at the end when the Cum Spiritu Sancto turns out to be almost the same as that from the famous Gloria.
Good tunes have many lives as PJ once said.
