You may have guessed it correctly – Kevin’s favorite Consort performance of his work was for Opus 19 in 2012. We sang his “Gloria In Excelsis Deo”, with Kevin at the piano. The soloists were: Beth Carter, soprano, Ruthann Lovetang, alto, and Michael Peterson, tenor.
Gloria in excelsis Deo. Et in terra pax hominibus voluntatis. Laudamus te. Benedicimus te. Glorificamus te. Gratias agimus tibi propter magnam gloriam tuam. Domine Deus, Rex coelestis, Deus Pater omnipotens. Domine Fili unigenite, Jesu Christe. Domine Deus, Agnus Dei, Filius Patris. Qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis. Qui tollis peccata mundi, suscipe deprecationem nostram. Qui sedes ad dexteram Patris, miserere nobis. Quoniam tu solis sanctus. Tu solus Dominus. To solus altissimus, Jesu Christe. Cum Sancto Spriritu in gloria Dei Patris. Amen

Lord God, Heaenly King, God the Father almighty. Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son. Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father. Thou who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Thou who takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayer. Thou who sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy upon us. For Thou alone art holy. Thou alone art the Lord. Thou alone art the most high, Jesus Christ. With thy Holy Spirit in the glory of God the Father; Amen.
