A Christmas Gloria

Rex requested this song and I can only applaud his zeal for preparation – it’s not even August.

It is a neat idea, putting the Gloria familiar from carols in The Gloria.

The text is available in the sample at OCP, where the sheet music can be purchased for download in time to learn it for Christmas.

In the preview I note that Paul Gibson who arranged this asked that no guitar chords be provided but “the guitarist may improvise chords if desired.” That was a challenge beyond my musical skill but I found a technological work around and came up with two versions.

    Are you willing to share the improvise guitar chords in written format?

      An inaccurate improvisation may be – with 2 chords to the bar:

      verse
      FBb CF DmC BbF CBb FBb FC EbEb CC FBb CF DmAm BbF

      chorus
      FDm7 Gm7C7 FBb CC FCFBb* FC
      FDm7 Gm7C7 FBb CC FCFBb* FC FF

      * sorry 4 chords in that bar.

      best of luck.
