Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750) was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist of the Baroque period. He enriched many established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach's compositions include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Mass in B minor, the The Well-Tempered Clavier, his cantatas, chorales, partitas, Passions, and organ works. His music is revered for its intellectual depth, technical command, and artistic beauty.

The Mass in B minor (BWV 232) by Johann Sebastian Bach is a musical setting of the complete Latin Mass. The work was one of Bach's last, not completed until 1749, the year before his death. Much of the Mass gave new form to some of the vocal music that Bach had composed throughout his career, dating back (in the case of the "Crucifixus") to 1714, almost always extensively revised. To complete the work, however, in the late 1740s Bach composed new sections of the Credo such as "Et incarnatus est". The completed Mass was his last major composition.

It was unusual for composers working in the Lutheran tradition to compose a Missa tota and Bach's motivations remain a matter of scholarly debate. The Mass was never performed in totality during Bach's lifetime; the first documented complete performance took place in 1859. Since the nineteenth century it has been widely hailed as one of the greatest compositions in history, and today it is frequently performed and recorded.

The "Gloria in excelsis" is a 5-part chorus (Soprano I, II, Alto, Tenor, Bass) in D major, marked Vivace in the 1733 first violin and cello parts, 3/8 time signature. In the mid-1740s, Bach reused this as the opening chorus of his cantata Gloria in excelsis Deo, BWV 191.

Although originally written for chorus and Orchestra, I created this arrangement for Woodwinds (Flutes, Oboes, Bb Clarinets & Bassoons), Brass (Trumpet & French Horns) & Strings (Violins, Violas, Cellos & Basses).
