How to identify composer?

Post by bmarnell » 23 May 2015 21:46

I have 2 tatty photocopy pages of a Gloria (in Excelsis Deo). The score is written in Bflat for SATB and Orgue. The first page is - Allegro brillante; second page is - Poco meno mosso. Is anyone aware of this Gloria and who its composer might be, please? Or where might I find the answer, please?

A couple of search engines exist, where you can enter a sequence of notes and they look for matches inside large music repositories (including CPDL): one is Peachnote, and the other is Kooplet. Maybe other similar search engines exist, which are not known to me. You may try using them.

The first page is - Allegro brillante; second page is - Poco meno mosso.
The piece is unidentifiable (to me). However my observation is that it must have been written for a professional choir. An amateur choir would run out of steam unprompted.
