General information

Latin = Glory to the Father, a trinitarian doxology customarily suffixed to Psalms and Canticles, and to fragments of them, in such places as the Introit and Gradual of the Mass. Also, sometimes used as an offertory response.

In some books containing chanted texts, it is expected that the reader will understand that the Gloria Patri is to be used, and to which formula it is to be sung, the variable ending is shown by means of the final vowels of the text, "E u o u a e".
