Gloria a 3

author of text

The Gloria avoids the eccentric chromaticism but sometimes surpasses the Credo (which precedes it in the Old Hall Manuscript) in rhythmic complexity—see, for example, the second ‘Qui tollis’ where in the manuscript the composer supplemented the normal black and red with blue notation in order to indicate his intentions.

Le Gloria qui suit évite le chromatisme excentrique mais surpasse parfois le Credo en complexité rythmique—voir, par exemple, le deuxième «Qui tollis» où le compositeur a complété l’habituel noir et rouge avec une notation bleue afin d’indiquer ses intentions.

Im darauffolgenden Gloria wird exzentrische Chromatik vermieden, jedoch übertrifft es das Credo zuweilen, was rhythmische Komplexität anbelangt—wie zum Beispiel beim zweiten „Qui tollis“, wo der Komponist die übliche schwarze und rote Tinte mit blauer Notation ergänzte, um seine Intentionen anzuzeigen.
