Cantata No. 191 -- Gloria in excelsis Deo (Glory to God in the Highest): For Soprano and Tenor Solo, SATB Chorus/Choir and Orchestra with Latin Text and English Text in Preface (Choral Score)
"Gloria in excelsis Deo" was performed in 1745 in Leipzig for Christmas Day, as indicated by the heading on the manuscript in Bach's own handwriting: "Jesu Juva Festo Nativitatis Christi - Celebration for the birth of Christ," to be sung around the sermon. Unlike Bach's other church cantatas, the words are not in German, but in Latin, taken from the Gloria and the Doxology. Choral score with piano accompaniment.
