Excelsis

INFORMATION

“Gloria in excelsis Deo” (Latin for “Glory to God in the highest”) is a Christian hymn known also as the Greater Doxology (as distinguished from the “Minor Doxology” or Gloria Patri) and the Angelic Hymn/Hymn of the Angels. The name is often abbreviated to Gloria in Excelsis or simply Gloria.
The hymn begins with the words that the angels said when the birth of Christ was announced to shepherds, as recorded in Luke 2:14(in Latin). Other verses were added very early, forming a doxology.
