Glory to God in the highest (Gloria in Excelsis Deo) is also known also as the Greater Doxology. In the Roman Catholic Church, the faithful sing or recite it during Mass immediately after the “Lord, have mercy” (Kyrie Eleison) on feasts, solemnities and Sundays in Ordinary Time, Eastertime and Christmastide. It is not sung during Lent and Advent.
The first words of this hymn come from the words the angels used while announcing to the shepherds about the birth of Christ.
14 “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”Luke 2:14
