The alternance of verses is different on this one:
- the 2nd Kyrie is different from the 1st and 3rd,
- the 2nd Christe is different from the 1st and 3rd,
- the 2nd last Kyrie is different from the 1st and 3rd,
- and obviously the 3rd Kyrie is different but that's common.
Gloria IX
7 LU40
GR32*
E
OK this is the master piece, quite technical. Mode 7, angelic. Remember your congregation might know it as it is not often sung.
- Deus Pater omnipotens: tricky ups and downs, podatus and clivis.
- Qui tollis peccata mundi: starts on G but one needs to be focused so to come back on G at peccata. Sounds easy to say but...
- Tu solus: here we will reach the top A note, relax the voice and sing without forcing. It is interesting to see this top A being the only top A note, highest note of the piece, "You alone are the Highest", Alpha and Omega.
Sanctus IX
5 LU42

Very beautiful Sanctus. Especially this top F, descending climacus FED, coming all along to start phrases or words.
