Sir Gilbert Levine conducts Beethoven Missa Solemnis, 2. Gloria

The "Gloria": another selection from Beethoven's glorious Missa Solemnis.  It's a mystery to me why I haven't heard this composition more often, or heard more about it.  Perhaps because Sacred Music puts off those who are suspicious of the Sacred . . . a double loss for them.
